Kirkby Lonsdale Church

Kirkby Lonsdale Church in Cumbria has a lot of churches for diverse religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is conventional for a town to have more than one church and Kirkby Lonsdale is no exception.

Regrettably church attendance has been tumbling for the last fifty years in the UK, with 15% of the populace presiding at least once every month, nonetheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the basis for the decline is simply that people don't believe in God any more, with wars raging across the world and the economy in a bad way it's easy to understand peoples lack of faith. In our opinion the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the staple values of Church such as togetherness, family, marriage and community leaving aside God for a second! If you think on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Kirkby Lonsdale community then it's actually astounding figures are going down. Surely we all want our Kirkby Lonsdale to be a wonderful spot to be alive, where individuals get along, they help one another in times of hardship 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 Kirkby Lonsdale church and demand change, you want to help, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your district chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because nobody desires to work to a greater 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 neighborhood schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of people such as the lonely, impoverished and abused. The church is seen as doing good causes which sees them in a nice light.

Churches have been seen in a dim light of late with the pope resigning, the first pope to do so in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, many 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 schooling to be priests, taking into account his anti-gay rhetoric in the past, 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 position to be - a good place to reflect 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 tombstone..i.e. the earliest date, that is a game that can keep kids pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
