Burton-upon-Trent Church

Burton-upon-Trent Church in Staffordshire has several churches for distinct religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Burton-upon-Trent is no exception.

Sadly church attendance has been falling for the last 50 years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the populace attending at least once per month, in spite of everything Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the rationale for the decline is just that people don't believe in God any more, with violence raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it's straightforward to understand peoples lack of faith. In our estimation the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the staple 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 Burton-upon-Trent community then it is in reality extraordinary figures are going down. Surely we all want our Burton-upon-Trent to be a splendid location to be alive, where persons get along, they help 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 Burton-upon-Trent church and plea 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 as one and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together with other organisations such as community schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of people such as the lonely, meager 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 quit after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, bearing in mind his anti-homosexual 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 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 memorial..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep kids smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the graveyard.
