Broxburn Church

Broxburn Church in West Lothian has several churches for distinctive religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Broxburn is no exception.

Alas church attendance has been dipping for the last 50 years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the population presiding at least once every month, nonetheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the basis for the decline is in basic terms that people don't have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the Earth and the economy in a bad way it is easy to understand peoples lack of faith. In our judgment 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 contemplate on all the good things that Churches represent in our Broxburn community then it is really shocking numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Broxburn to be a great spot to be alive, where individuals get along, they assist one another in times of hardship 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 Broxburn 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 hardly a soul wants to work to a superior goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get organized and make this happen

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, 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 schooling to be priests, taking into account his anti-homosexual rhetoric in the past, this was seen as "do as I say not as I do"!

On the lighter side of things churches are seen as a very peaceful position 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 kids was to find the oldest memorial..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep children pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the cemetery.
