Dalbeattie Church

Dalbeattie Church in Kirkcudbrightshire has several churches for distinct religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is conventional for a town to have more than one church and Dalbeattie is no exception.

Sadly church attendance has been plummeting for the last fifty years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the populace attending at least once every month, nevertheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the residents.

We think the reason for the decline is just that people do not believe in God any more, with violence raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it's easy to understand peoples lack of faith. In our estimation the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the central 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 represent in our Dalbeattie community then it is in reality remarkable figures are going down. Surely we all want our Dalbeattie to be a great location 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 Dalbeattie church and pressure for change, you want to assist, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because nobody desires to work to a superior 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 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, meager 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 in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, loads 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 resigned after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into account his anti-gay rhetoric 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 place 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 kids was to find the oldest gravestone..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep children amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the cemetery.
