Fleckney Church

Fleckney Church in Leicestershire has a lot of churches for different religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Fleckney is no exception.

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

We think the rationale for the decline is in simple terms that people don't believe in God any more, with violence raging across the world and the economy in a bad way it is easy to appreciate 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 contemplate on all the good things that Churches represent in our Fleckney community then it is truly shocking figures are going down. Surely we all want our Fleckney to be a good place to live, where inhabitants get along, they help 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 Fleckney church and pressure for 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 a soul desires to work to a better goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get organized and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have collaborated 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 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 recently 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 in recent times resigned after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into account his anti-homosexual language 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 space to contemplate on the things that are going on in your life at the present time.

A game we used to play as kids was to find the oldest gravestone..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep kids amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the graveyard.
