Bilston Church

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

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

We think the cause for the decline is in basic terms that people don't believe in God any more, with wars raging across the Earth and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it's straightforward 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 contemplate on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Bilston community then it's truly shocking numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Bilston to be a good location to dwell, where individuals get along, they help each other 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 Bilston church and plea for 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. The UK is on its knees because nobody desires to work to a superior 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 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, humble 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, 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 in recent times deserted after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, taking into account his anti-gay 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 space 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 headstone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a game that can keep children pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the cemetery.
