Wigton Church

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

Sadly church attendance has been tumbling for the last 50 years in the UK, with 15% of the populace attending at least once every month, however Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the populace.

We think the cause for the decline is simply that people don't have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the world and the economy in a bad way it is easy to appreciate peoples lack of faith. In our judgment 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 ruminate on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Wigton community then it's in reality astounding numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Wigton to be a splendid location to live, where persons 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 Wigton church and plea for change, you want to assist, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your neighborhood chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because nobody desires to work to a better goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get as one and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together with other organisations such as native schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of people such as the lonely, poor 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 recently with the pope resigning, the first pope to do so in more than 600 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 quit after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, in view of his anti-gay words 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 quiet position to be - a good space to cogitate on the things that are happening in your life at the present moment.

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