Oldbury Church

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

Regrettably church attendance has been tumbling for the last fifty years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the population attending at least once per month, still Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the basis for the decline is just that people do not believe in God any more, with wars raging across the world and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it is straightforward to comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our judgment 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 ruminate on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Oldbury community then it's in reality remarkable numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Oldbury to be a great place to live, where inhabitants 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 Oldbury church and pressure for change, you want to assist, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your district chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because nobody desires to work to a better goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get organized and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have collaborated with other organisations such as resident schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of people such as the lonely, feeble 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 in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, loads 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 training to be priests, bearing in mind his anti-gay words 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 spot to be - a good place to cogitate on the things that are going on in your life at the present moment.

A game we used to play as children was to find the oldest gravestone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a game that can keep kids smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the graveyard.
