Sunderland Church

Sunderland Church in Tyne and Wear 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 Sunderland is no exception.

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

We think the basis for the decline is just that people do not believe in God any more, with violence raging across the Earth and the economy in a bad way it is straightforward to appreciate peoples lack of faith. In our opinion 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 stand for in our Sunderland community then it's really surprising figures are going down. Surely we all want our Sunderland to be a good place to dwell, where inhabitants get along, they assist 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 Sunderland church and plea for change, you want to assist, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your district chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because nobody wishes to work to a better goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get organized and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have collaborated with other organisations such as regional schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of inhabitants 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 recently 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, various 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 schooling 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 peaceful spot to be - a good spot to reflect on the things that are happening in your life at the present time.

A game we used to play as children was to find the oldest memorial..i.e. the earliest date, that is a game that can keep kids amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the graveyard.
