Hebden Bridge Church

Hebden Bridge Church in West Yorkshire has several churches for diverse religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is frequent for a town to have more than one church and Hebden Bridge is no exception.

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

We think the grounds for the decline is just that people do not believe in God any more, with wars raging across the Earth and the economy in a bad way it's easy to comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our estimation the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the central 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 Hebden Bridge community then it's truly extraordinary numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Hebden Bridge to be a great spot to be alive, where individuals get along, they assist each other 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 Hebden Bridge church and demand change, you want to help, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your neighborhood chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because hardly a soul wants to work to a better 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 inhabitants such as the lonely, meager 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 in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, a lot 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 in recent times walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, in view of 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 quiet place to be - a good place to contemplate on the things that are happening in your life at the present time.

A game we used to play as kids was to find the oldest gravestone..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 walk/run round the graveyard.
