Harrow Church

Harrow Church in Middlesex has numerous churches for assorted religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Harrow is no exception.

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

We think the rationale for the decline is in simple terms that people don't have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the world and the economy in a bad way it is straightforward to understand peoples lack of faith. In our judgment 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 Harrow community then it is in reality shocking numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Harrow to be a great spot to dwell, where individuals get along, they help each other in times of need 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 Harrow church and pressure for change, you want to help, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your district chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because nobody 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 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, poor 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 to do so in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, many 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 resigned after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, considering his anti-gay words 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 spot to be - a good spot to ruminate 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 tombstone..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep kids smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the graveyard.
