Monmouth Church

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

Alas church attendance has been tumbling for the last 50 years in the UK, with 15% of the populace presiding at least once per month, nonetheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the residents.

We think the rationale for the decline is just that people do not have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the planet and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it's easy to comprehend 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 ruminate on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Monmouth community then it is really amazing figures are going down. Surely we all want our Monmouth to be a good spot to live, where inhabitants get along, they assist 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 Monmouth church and pressure 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 anybody desires to work to a better goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get together and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together with other organisations such as local 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 nice 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, numerous 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 deserted after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, considering his anti-homosexual words 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 position to be - a good space 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 headstone..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep kids smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the cemetery.
