Cramlington Church

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

Regrettably church attendance has been tumbling for the last 50 years in the UK, with 15% of the population presiding at least once per month, however Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the explanation for the decline is in simple terms that people do not have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the Earth and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it is easy to appreciate 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 think on all the good things that Churches represent in our Cramlington community then it's truly shocking figures are going down. Surely we all want our Cramlington to be a splendid place to live, where individuals get along, they help 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 Cramlington church and demand change, you want to assist, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your neighborhood chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because hardly a soul wishes to work to a better 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 worked together with other organisations such as resident 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 in recent times walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, in view of 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 spot to be - a good place to ruminate 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 memorial..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep children pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
