Bridgend Church

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

Regrettably church attendance has been dipping for the last fifty years in the UK, with 15% of the populace presiding at least once per month, however Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the cause for the decline is simply that people don't have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it's easy to appreciate peoples lack of faith. In our opinion 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 reflect on all the good things that Churches represent in our Bridgend community then it is in reality amazing numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Bridgend to be a splendid place to inhabit, where inhabitants get along, they help each other in times of need 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 Bridgend church and demand change, you want to assist, 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 greater goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get as one 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, 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 to do so in more than 600 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 recently quit after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, considering his anti-homosexual 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 space 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 children was to find the oldest gravestone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a diversion that can keep kids amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the cemetery.
