Burntisland Church

Burntisland Church in Fife has numerous churches for various religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is conventional for a town to have more than one church and Burntisland is no exception.

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

We think the reason for the decline is in simple terms that people don't have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it's straightforward to comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our judgment 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 think on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Burntisland community then it's actually extraordinary figures are going down. Surely we all want our Burntisland to be a splendid location to be alive, where inhabitants get along, they assist one another in times of hardship and people give to each other without asking anything back in return. So what we are asking is for you to go along to your Burntisland church and pressure for change, you want to assist, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because nobody wishes to work to a better goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get organized 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 inhabitants such as the lonely, lowly 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, countless 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 deserted after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, taking into account his anti-gay speech-making 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 ruminate on the things that are happening in your life at the present time.

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