Timperley Church

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

Sadly church attendance has been tumbling for the last fifty 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 people.

We think the rationale for the decline is in basic terms that people don't have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the planet and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it is straightforward to appreciate peoples lack of faith. In our estimation 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 ruminate on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Timperley community then it is really extraordinary numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Timperley to be a good place to live, where individuals 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 Timperley church and pressure for change, you want to help, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because hardly a soul wishes to work to a superior goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get organized 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 inhabitants such as the lonely, meager 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 in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, a lot 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, 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 place to be - a good spot to ruminate 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 headstone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a game that can keep kids pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
