Haworth Church

Haworth Church in West Yorkshire has many churches for distinct religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Haworth is no exception.

Unfortunately church attendance has been plummeting for the last fifty years in the UK, with 15% of the populace attending at least once per month, however Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the populace.

We think the reason 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 is easy to appreciate peoples lack of faith. In our estimation the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the core 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 Haworth community then it's truly astonishing figures are going down. Surely we all want our Haworth to be a great location to inhabit, where people 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 Haworth church and make a request change, you want to help, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your district chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because hardly anybody wants to work to a superior 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 inhabitants such as the lonely, humble 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 in more than six hundred 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 recently quit after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, taking into account his anti-homosexual 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 space to reflect 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 headstone..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep children amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the cemetery.
