Hebburn Church

Hebburn Church in Tyne and Wear has various churches for assorted religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is frequent for a town to have more than one church and Hebburn is no exception.

Regrettably church attendance has been falling for the last fifty years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the population attending at least once per month, nevertheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the people.

We think the grounds for the decline is in basic terms that people don't have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the Earth and the economy in a bad way it is easy to understand 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 Hebburn community then it's truly astonishing numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Hebburn to be a wonderful location to dwell, where inhabitants get along, they assist one another in times of hardship 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 Hebburn church and plea 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. This country is on its knees because nobody wishes to work to a superior goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get organized and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together with other organisations such as native 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 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, numerous 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 quit after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into consideration his anti-homosexual rhetoric 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 spot to cogitate on the things that are going on in your life at the present moment.

A game we used to play as children was to find the oldest headstone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a diversion that can keep children smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the graveyard.
