Inverkeithing Church

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

Regrettably church attendance has been sinking for the last 50 years in the UK, with 15% of the population presiding at least once per month, in spite of everything Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the populace.

We think the rationale for the decline is simply that people don't have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the world and the economy in a bad way it is straightforward to understand peoples lack of faith. In our judgment the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the central 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 represent in our Inverkeithing community then it's truly astounding numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Inverkeithing to be a wonderful spot to inhabit, where people get along, they help each other 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 Inverkeithing 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 hardly anybody wishes to work to a greater 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 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, 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 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 in recent times deserted after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, considering his anti-gay speech-making 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 position to be - a good space to cogitate on the things that are going on in your life at the present moment.

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