Bridge of Weir Church

Bridge of Weir Church in Renfrewshire has many churches for distinctive religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is regular for a town to have more than one church and Bridge of Weir is no exception.

Sadly church attendance has been dipping 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 population.

We think the rationale for the decline is just that people don't believe in God any more, with violence raging across the world and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it is straightforward to appreciate peoples lack of faith. In our estimation 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 reflect on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Bridge of Weir community then it's actually surprising figures are going down. Surely we all want our Bridge of Weir to be a fantastic location to live, where inhabitants get along, they help one another 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 Bridge of Weir church and demand 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 wishes to work to a greater goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get as one 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, 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 of late with the pope resigning, the first pope 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 in recent times walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, in view of his anti-homosexual speech-making 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 spot to be - a good space to cogitate 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 memorial..i.e. the earliest date, that's a diversion that can keep children amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
