Aldridge Church

Aldridge Church in West Midlands has several churches for various religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is conventional for a town to have more than one church and Aldridge is no exception.

Alas church attendance has been dropping for the last fifty years in the UK, with 15% of the populace presiding at least once per month, nonetheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the rationale for the decline is in basic terms that people don't believe in God any more, with violence raging across the planet and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it's straightforward to comprehend 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 think on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Aldridge community then it is truly extraordinary numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Aldridge to be a splendid location to live, where persons get along, they assist 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 Aldridge church and demand change, you want to assist, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your neighborhood chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because nobody desires 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 local 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 good light.

Churches have been seen in a dim light recently with the pope resigning, the first pope to do so in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, many 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, in view of his anti-gay 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 place to be - a good place to cogitate 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 gravestone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a diversion that can keep children smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the graveyard.
