Birkdale Church

Birkdale Church in Merseyside has various churches for assorted religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is frequent for a town to have more than one church and Birkdale is no exception.

Regrettably church attendance has been dipping for the last 50 years in the UK, with 15% of the population attending at least once every month, still Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the grounds for the decline is in simple terms that people do not have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the world and the economy in a bad way it is easy to understand peoples lack of faith. In our estimation 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 think on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Birkdale community then it's truly amazing figures are going down. Surely we all want our Birkdale to be a fantastic location to be alive, where people 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 Birkdale church and demand 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. The UK is on its knees because nobody wants 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 worked together with other organisations such as native schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of inhabitants such as the lonely, lowly and abused. The church is seen as doing good causes which sees them in a good 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 schooling to be priests, considering his anti-gay speech-making 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 peaceful space to be - a good spot to ruminate on the things that are happening in your life at the present time.

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