Kirkby-in-Ashfield Church

Kirkby-in-Ashfield Church in Nottinghamshire has various churches for various religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is conventional for a town to have more than one church and Kirkby-in-Ashfield is no exception.

Unfortunately church attendance has been sinking for the last 50 years in the UK, with 15% of the populace attending at least once per month, still Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the populace.

We think the cause for the decline is in basic terms that people do not believe in God any more, with wars raging across the planet and the wealth of the nation 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 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 stand for in our Kirkby-in-Ashfield community then it's truly astounding numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Kirkby-in-Ashfield to be a wonderful place to inhabit, where persons get along, they assist each other in times of need 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 Kirkby-in-Ashfield church and plea 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. The UK is on its knees because nobody wishes 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 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, humble 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, 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 deserted after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into consideration his anti-homosexual language 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 spot 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 tombstone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a diversion that can keep children pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
