Skegness Church

Skegness Church in Lincolnshire has a lot of churches for various religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Skegness is no exception.

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

We think the explanation for the decline is simply that people do not believe in God any more, with violence raging across the Earth and the wealth of the nation 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 fundamental 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 represent in our Skegness community then it's really astounding numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Skegness to be a wonderful place to inhabit, where individuals get along, they assist one another 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 Skegness church and plea for change, you want to assist, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your district chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because nobody desires to work to a superior goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get as one and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have collaborated 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 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 recently resigned after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, in view of his anti-gay language 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 space to be - a good space to cogitate on the things that are happening in your life at the present moment.

A game we used to play as kids was to find the oldest headstone..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 cemetery.
