Pitsford Church

Pitsford Church in Northamptonshire has various churches for diverse religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is regular for a town to have more than one church and Pitsford is no exception.

Unfortunately church attendance has been falling 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 residents.

We think the explanation for the decline is simply that people do not believe in God any more, with wars raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it's easy to understand peoples lack of faith. In our judgment the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the fundamental 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 Pitsford community then it's actually surprising figures are going down. Surely we all want our Pitsford to be a splendid place to be alive, where individuals get along, they assist 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 Pitsford church and make a request change, you want to help, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your district chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because hardly anybody wants to work to a superior 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 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 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, various 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 schooling to be priests, taking into account his anti-gay 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 position to be - a good place 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 gravestone..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep kids pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the graveyard.
