Heath Town Church

Heath Town Church in West Midlands has many churches for assorted religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is frequent for a town to have more than one church and Heath Town is no exception.

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

We think the reason for the decline is simply that people do not believe in God any more, with violence raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it is easy to understand peoples lack of faith. In our opinion the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the central 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 Heath Town community then it's actually surprising numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Heath Town to be a wonderful location to dwell, where individuals get along, they help one another in times of need 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 Heath Town church and pressure for change, you want to assist, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because hardly anybody wants to work to a greater goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get together and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have collaborated with other organisations such as native 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, 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 in recent times deserted after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, in view of 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 peaceful 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 children was to find the oldest tombstone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a diversion that can keep kids amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
