Whitefield Church

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

Regrettably church attendance has been dipping for the last fifty years in the UK, with 15% of the populace attending at least once per month, however Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the population.

We think the explanation for the decline is in simple terms 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 comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our estimation 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 think on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Whitefield community then it is really astounding figures are going down. Surely we all want our Whitefield to be a fantastic spot to inhabit, where inhabitants get along, they help one another in times of need 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 Whitefield church and demand change, you want to help, 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 hardly anybody wants to work to a better goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get together and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have collaborated with other organisations such as local schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of inhabitants such as the lonely, feeble 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 six hundred 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 quit after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into consideration 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 quiet space to be - a good place to cogitate 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 is a game that can keep kids amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the cemetery.
