Llanrug Church

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

Sadly church attendance has been plummeting for the last fifty years in the UK, with 15% of the population presiding at least once every month, in spite of everything 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 do not believe in God any more, with violence raging across the world and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it is easy to understand peoples lack of faith. In our judgment the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the fundamental 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 Llanrug community then it's actually extraordinary figures are going down. Surely we all want our Llanrug to be a good location to inhabit, where persons get along, they help each other in times of hardship 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 Llanrug church and demand change, you want to help, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your district chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because nobody 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 regional 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 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, 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 schooling to be priests, in view of his anti-gay rhetoric 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 peaceful spot to be - a good space to contemplate 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's a game that can keep children smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the graveyard.
