West Haddon Church

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

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

We think the rationale for the decline is simply that people don't have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the planet and the wealth of the nation 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 central 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 represent in our West Haddon community then it's really extraordinary figures are going down. Surely we all want our West Haddon to be a wonderful location to inhabit, where people get along, they help one another 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 West Haddon church and pressure for change, you want to assist, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because nobody wants to work to a superior goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get organized and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together 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 in recent times quit after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, in view of 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 peaceful place 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 headstone..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 walk/run round the cemetery.
