Ballindalloch Church

Ballindalloch Church in Banffshire has many churches for distinctive religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is regular for a town to have more than one church and Ballindalloch is no exception.

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

We think the rationale for the decline is in simple terms that people don't believe in God any more, with wars raging across the Earth and the economy in a bad way it's straightforward to understand peoples lack of faith. In our estimation 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 ruminate on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Ballindalloch community then it is in reality astounding numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Ballindalloch to be a splendid place to be alive, where individuals get along, they help each other 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 Ballindalloch church and plea for 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 hardly a soul wishes to work to a greater goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get organized 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, poor 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, scores 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 recently quit after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into account 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 position to be - a good place to reflect on the things that are happening in your life at the present moment.

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