Debenham Church

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

Alas church attendance has been dipping for the last fifty years in the UK, with 15% of the populace presiding at least once per month, nevertheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the populace.

We think the reason for the decline is simply that people don't believe in God any more, with violence raging across the world and the economy 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 core 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 Debenham community then it is truly astounding figures are going down. Surely we all want our Debenham to be a great location to be alive, where persons get along, they help 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 Debenham church and pressure for change, you want to help, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because nobody wants to work to a better goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get together and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together 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 inhabitants 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 of late with the pope resigning, the first pope 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 walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, bearing in mind his anti-gay words 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 spot to be - a good place to contemplate 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 is a game that can keep children pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
