Rossendale Church

Rossendale Church in Lancashire has numerous churches for diverse religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is frequent for a town to have more than one church and Rossendale is no exception.

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

We think the cause for the decline is in basic terms that people don't believe in God any more, with violence raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it's straightforward to comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our opinion the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the core values of Church such as togetherness, family, marriage and community leaving aside God for a second! If you reflect on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Rossendale community then it's in reality remarkable numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Rossendale to be a wonderful location to be alive, where people get along, they assist 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 Rossendale church and pressure for change, you want to help, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your neighborhood chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because hardly a soul wishes to work to a greater 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 people 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 recently with the pope resigning, the first pope to do so in more than six hundred years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, loads 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 recently walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into account his anti-gay language 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 quiet position to be - a good space 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 memorial..i.e. the earliest date, that is a game that can keep children pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
