Sedgefield Church

Sedgefield Church in County Durham has many churches for assorted religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is frequent for a town to have more than one church and Sedgefield is no exception.

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

We think the rationale for the decline is in basic terms that people don't have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it is straightforward to comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our estimation 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 Sedgefield community then it's truly surprising figures are going down. Surely we all want our Sedgefield to be a wonderful location to be alive, where individuals get along, they help each other 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 Sedgefield church and pressure for 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 hardly anybody desires 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 collaborated 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, impoverished 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 of late with the pope resigning, the first pope in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, various 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 deserted after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, bearing in mind 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 quiet 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 children was to find the oldest memorial..i.e. the earliest date, that is a game that can keep children amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the graveyard.
