Aldeburgh Church

Aldeburgh Church in Suffolk has numerous churches for assorted religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Aldeburgh is no exception.

Unfortunately 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, still Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the explanation for the decline is simply that people do not believe 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 opinion 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 contemplate on all the good things that Churches represent in our Aldeburgh community then it's really surprising figures are going down. Surely we all want our Aldeburgh to be a great spot to live, where persons get along, they help each other 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 Aldeburgh church and plea for 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 nobody wishes 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 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, lowly 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 six hundred years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, scores 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 resigned after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, taking into consideration his anti-gay speech-making in the past, 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 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 tombstone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a game that can keep children smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
