Berwick-upon-Tweed Church

Berwick-upon-Tweed Church in Northumberland has many churches for different religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Berwick-upon-Tweed is no exception.

Unfortunately church attendance has been plummeting for the last 50 years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the population presiding at least once every month, however Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the populace.

We think the reason for the decline is in basic terms that people do not have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the Earth and the economy in a bad way it is easy to comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our estimation the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the central 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 Berwick-upon-Tweed community then it is really extraordinary numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Berwick-upon-Tweed to be a good spot to live, where persons get along, they assist one another 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 Berwick-upon-Tweed church and plea for 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 a soul desires to work to a greater goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us 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 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 recently with the pope resigning, the first pope 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 recently deserted after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, bearing in mind his anti-gay 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 quiet space to be - a good place to contemplate 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 memorial..i.e. the earliest date, that is a game that can keep kids amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
