Clayton Church

Clayton Church in Greater Manchester has various churches for distinct religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Clayton is no exception.

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

We think the reason for the decline is in simple terms that people don't have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the Earth and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it's straightforward 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 contemplate on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Clayton community then it's in reality extraordinary numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Clayton to be a fantastic place to be alive, where people get along, they assist each other 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 Clayton church and make a request change, you want to assist, and you think it is 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 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 collaborated with other organisations such as community 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 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, 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 consideration 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 peaceful place to be - a good spot to reflect 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 run/walk round the cemetery.
