Londonderry Church

Londonderry Church in County Londonderry has numerous churches for diverse religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is regular for a town to have more than one church and Londonderry is no exception.

Regrettably church attendance has been tumbling for the last fifty years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the population presiding at least once every month, however Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the residents.

We think the reason for the decline is simply that people do not have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the planet and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it is straightforward to comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our opinion the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the fundamental values of Church such as togetherness, family, marriage and community leaving aside God for a second! If you ruminate on all the good things that Churches represent in our Londonderry community then it's in reality astounding numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Londonderry to be a great spot to be alive, where inhabitants get along, they assist one another in times of need and people offer to each other without asking anything back in return. So what we are asking is for you to go along to your Londonderry church and make a request change, you want to assist, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because nobody wants to work to a superior goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get as one and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together with other organisations such as local schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of inhabitants such as the lonely, feeble and abused. The church is seen as doing good causes which sees them in a good light.

Churches have been seen in a dim light of late with the pope resigning, the first pope to do so in more than six hundred years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, scores of people have speculated that it is not just a matter of the pope getting older and not being able to carry out his job to the fullest.

The scottish Cardinal Keith O'Brien recently walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, considering his anti-gay language in bygone times, this was seen as "do as I say not as I do"!

On the lighter side of things churches are seen as a very peaceful space to be - a good space to contemplate on the things that are happening in your life at the present time.

A game we used to play as kids was to find the oldest headstone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a diversion that can keep children pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the graveyard.
