Bingley Church

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

Unfortunately church attendance has been plummeting for the last 50 years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the populace presiding at least once every month, notwithstanding Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the residents.

We think the grounds for the decline is just that people don't believe in God any more, with violence raging across the Earth and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it is 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 ruminate on all the good things that Churches represent in our Bingley community then it is actually amazing numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Bingley to be a great spot to live, where persons get along, they assist each other in times of need 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 Bingley church and pressure for change, you want to help, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because hardly a soul wishes 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 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, lowly 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 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 recently quit after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, in view of 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 peaceful space to be - a good spot to reflect on the things that are happening in your life at the present moment.

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