Pitlochry Church

Pitlochry Church in Perthshire 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 Pitlochry is no exception.

Sadly church attendance has been plummeting for the last 50 years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the population attending at least once every month, nonetheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the populace.

We think the basis for the decline is simply 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 comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our opinion 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 contemplate on all the good things that Churches represent in our Pitlochry community then it's truly extraordinary numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Pitlochry to be a great spot to be alive, where persons get along, they help 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 Pitlochry 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 hardly a soul 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 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 people 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, numerous 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 quit after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into account his anti-gay 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 quiet place to be - a good place to reflect on the things that are going on in your life at the present time.

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