Goole Church

Goole Church in Humberside has several churches for separate religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is frequent for a town to have more than one church and Goole is no exception.

Sadly church attendance has been falling for the last 50 years in the UK, 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 reason for the decline is simply that people do not have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the planet and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it's easy to understand peoples lack of faith. In our judgment 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 reflect on all the good things that Churches represent in our Goole community then it is really astounding figures are going down. Surely we all want our Goole to be a great place to live, where individuals get along, they help 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 Goole church and demand change, you want to help, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your neighborhood chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because hardly anybody desires to work to a greater 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 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, poor 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 to do so in more than six hundred 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 in recent times resigned after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into consideration his anti-homosexual speech-making 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 happening in your life at the present moment.

A game we used to play as children was to find the oldest headstone..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep children smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the graveyard.
