Carnoustie Church

Carnoustie Church in Angus has various churches for separate religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Carnoustie is no exception.

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

We think the rationale for the decline is in simple terms that people don't have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the Earth and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it's straightforward to understand peoples lack of faith. In our judgment the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the staple 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 Carnoustie community then it's actually surprising figures are going down. Surely we all want our Carnoustie to be a good location to be alive, where people get along, they assist one another in times of hardship 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 Carnoustie church and make a request change, you want to help, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. This country 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 resident schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of people such as the lonely, impoverished 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 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 resigned after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into account his anti-gay 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 spot 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 children was to find the oldest tombstone..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep children smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
