Keighley Church

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

Alas church attendance has been tumbling for the last 50 years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the populace presiding at least once per month, in spite of everything Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the people.

We think the reason for the decline is in simple terms that people do not believe in God any more, with violence raging across the world and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it's straightforward to understand peoples lack of faith. In our judgment the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the staple 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 Keighley community then it's really surprising numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Keighley to be a splendid place to inhabit, where people get along, they help 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 Keighley 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. This country is on its knees because nobody wishes to work to a better goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get as one and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have collaborated with other organisations such as community schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of inhabitants 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 recently with the pope resigning, the first pope to do so in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, numerous 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 walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, taking into account his anti-gay rhetoric in the past, 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 position to be - a good space to ruminate 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 headstone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a game that can keep kids pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the graveyard.
