    No.

    I've been a few times, but only to volunteer etc. I like the architecture and the community feel, though.

    I went on a few independent occasions to volunteer

    That's rather different than going on a regular basis and not just to volunteer to collect money/hand out food etc

    Did you go every week with your family to admire the architecture?

    I tend to go between 1-3 times per week, depending on various things. Always at least once per week on a Sunday, but sometimes twice on Sundays and occasionally on a Wednesday as well.

    I meant community here in the context of older citizens, who, in lieu of such a social gathering, may be isolated and lonely.

    Like on weekends and especially Christmas and on Easter or any other Christian celebration/holiday? If so do you go to a particular church?

    I've been slacking but would love to go on a regular basis myself.
    Hi, yeah I go, nearly manage to make it every Sunday. Its so important to go and get 'fed' with God's word.

    I only go to churches where the preaching is strong so you get totally filled and topped up ready for the week. I don't care if its a cathedral or a warehouse, its the people that matter to me .

    I love a good band too and worship songs like this

    Love it!


    Of course the bible tells us to go so that we remain encouraged

    Hebrews 10:25 - Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

    Colossians 3 v 16 - Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.

    Romans 10 v 17 - Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.

    Are you open to God?

    Yeah there's a bible class but most of the people there have probably been going for a while because of their upbringing so they would know tons of verses off by heart etc.

    Since I was born I had to go to church every day up until I was 16. Now I'm agnostic (flipping between one and then the other almost daily) and I have considered going again just once to see some of the people I used to know. I've made a lot of long lasting friendships from there and it used to be good. I had the same priest from being a child till 14 and he was a really interesting person who had lived an interesting life, also every week he told a new story from the bible and explained what it meant and I felt like I had learned a lesson from it. From 14 onwards the new priest made me want to cut myself. Also unlike what other people have been saying my church was only 2/3s full when I was a kid but now there's only 3 or 4 spare seats (my friends tells me) and apparently there's lots of young people there now. There's another third priest in as well so it might be good but I find religion really difficult to believe so probably not, although midnight mass sounds interesting.

    Also I went to a cathedral today in St Nicholas's Newcastle which had some great architecture.
