Riding Mill Church

Riding Mill Church in Northumberland has many churches for distinctive religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is regular for a town to have more than one church and Riding Mill is no exception.

Alas church attendance has been dropping for the last 50 years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the population attending at least once every month, still Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the people.

We think the grounds for the decline is in simple terms that people do not believe in God any more, with wars raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it's easy to understand peoples lack of faith. In our opinion 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 Riding Mill community then it's actually extraordinary numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Riding Mill to be a splendid location to dwell, where individuals get along, they assist 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 Riding Mill church and plea for change, you want to assist, and you think it is 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 wants to work to a superior 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 neighborhood schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of people such as the lonely, humble 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 recently with the pope resigning, the first pope in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, countless 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 schooling to be priests, considering his anti-homosexual 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 peaceful place to be - a good space to ruminate on the things that are going on 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's a diversion that can keep kids amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the cemetery.
