Newcastle Church

Newcastle Church in County Down has a lot of churches for different religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is frequent for a town to have more than one church and Newcastle is no exception.

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

We think the grounds for the decline is in basic terms that people don't believe 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 judgment 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 contemplate on all the good things that Churches represent in our Newcastle community then it's actually startling numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Newcastle to be a wonderful location to inhabit, where people get along, they assist 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 Newcastle church and plea for change, you want to assist, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because nobody 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 community 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 recently 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, 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 quit after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into consideration his anti-homosexual language 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 place to be - a good spot to cogitate on the things that are happening 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'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.
