Lytham St. Anne's Church

Lytham St. Anne's Church in Lancashire has various churches for distinctive religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Lytham St. Anne's is no exception.

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

We think the rationale for the decline is just that people do not have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the world 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 central 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 represent in our Lytham St. Anne's community then it is in reality shocking numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Lytham St. Anne's to be a good location to live, where people get along, they assist one another 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 Lytham St. Anne's church and plea 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. The UK is on its knees because nobody wants to work to a greater goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get together 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 people such as the lonely, lowly 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 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, in view of his anti-homosexual 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 place to ruminate on the things that are happening in your life at the present moment.

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