Lydbury North Church

Lydbury North Church in Shropshire has various churches for assorted religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is frequent for a town to have more than one church and Lydbury North is no exception.

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

We think the reason for the decline is in basic terms that people do not have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the Earth and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it is easy 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 represent in our Lydbury North community then it is truly surprising figures are going down. Surely we all want our Lydbury North to be a good location to live, where inhabitants get along, they help one another in times of hardship 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 Lydbury North church and pressure 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 hardly anybody 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 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 recently with the pope resigning, the first pope 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 resigned after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, in view of his anti-gay rhetoric 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 space to be - a good space to contemplate on the things that are happening in your life at the present time.

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