Teesside Church

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

Alas church attendance has been dipping for the last 50 years in the UK, with 15% of the population presiding at least once every month, however Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the people.

We think the explanation for the decline is in basic terms that people do not believe in God any more, with wars raging across the Earth and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it's easy to comprehend 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 Teesside community then it's actually startling numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Teesside to be a wonderful spot to dwell, where inhabitants get along, they help 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 Teesside church and make a request change, you want to assist, 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 nobody desires to work to a superior 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 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, 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 to do so in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, scores 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 resigned after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, taking into consideration 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 place to be - a good place to ruminate 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 memorial..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 graveyard.
