Rotherham Church

Rotherham Church in South Yorkshire has many churches for various religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is frequent for a town to have more than one church and Rotherham is no exception.

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

We think the explanation for the decline is in basic terms that people don't believe in God any more, with violence raging across the world and the economy in a bad way it is easy to understand peoples lack of faith. In our opinion the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the fundamental values of Church such as togetherness, family, marriage and community leaving aside God for a second! If you ruminate on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Rotherham community then it is really amazing figures are going down. Surely we all want our Rotherham to be a fantastic spot to be alive, where inhabitants get along, they assist each other in times of need 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 Rotherham church and pressure for change, you want to help, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your neighborhood chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because nobody wants to work to a greater 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 regional schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of inhabitants such as the lonely, meager and abused. The church is seen as doing good causes which sees them in a good light.

Churches have been seen in a dim light recently with the pope resigning, the first pope in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, scores 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 recently walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling 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 quiet spot to be - a good space to cogitate 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 memorial..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep children amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the cemetery.
