Saltburn Church

Saltburn Church in Cleveland has many churches for separate religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is conventional for a town to have more than one church and Saltburn is no exception.

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

We think the rationale for the decline is in simple terms that people don't have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the Earth and the economy in a bad way it's easy to appreciate peoples lack of faith. In our estimation 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 represent in our Saltburn community then it is really astounding figures are going down. Surely we all want our Saltburn to be a fantastic place to live, where people get along, they help one another 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 Saltburn church and demand 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. The UK is on its knees because hardly anybody 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 worked together with other organisations such as regional schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of people such as the lonely, impoverished 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 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, a lot 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 walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into account his anti-homosexual 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 quiet 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 kids was to find the oldest tombstone..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep kids pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the graveyard.
