Wishaw Church

Wishaw Church in Warwickshire has numerous churches for different religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Wishaw is no exception.

Unfortunately church attendance has been sinking for the last 50 years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the populace presiding at least once per month, nevertheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the grounds for the decline is simply that people don't believe in God any more, with wars raging across the Earth and the economy in a bad way it's easy to appreciate peoples lack of faith. In our opinion the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the core 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 Wishaw community then it is really astonishing figures are going down. Surely we all want our Wishaw to be a good spot to inhabit, where people get along, they help each other 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 Wishaw church and pressure for change, you want to help, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because nobody desires 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 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 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 of late with the pope resigning, the first pope to do so in more than six hundred years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, various 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, bearing in mind 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 place to be - a good place to contemplate on the things that are going on in your life at the present time.

A game we used to play as kids was to find the oldest headstone..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 run/walk round the cemetery.
