Newton Abbot Church

Newton Abbot Church in Devon has several churches for assorted religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Newton Abbot is no exception.

Sadly church attendance has been dipping for the last 50 years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the populace attending at least once per month, notwithstanding Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the residents.

We think the rationale for the decline is simply that people do not 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 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 think on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Newton Abbot community then it's in reality amazing figures are going down. Surely we all want our Newton Abbot to be a great place to dwell, where inhabitants get along, they assist each other in times of hardship 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 Newton Abbot church and demand change, you want to help, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your district chip in and help with things. This country 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 as one 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, meager 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, 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 quit after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, taking into account his anti-homosexual rhetoric 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 spot to be - a good place to contemplate on the things that are happening in your life at the present moment.

A game we used to play as children was to find the oldest tombstone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a game that can keep kids amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the cemetery.
