Dinas Powys Church

Dinas Powys Church in South Glamorgan has numerous churches for assorted religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is regular for a town to have more than one church and Dinas Powys is no exception.

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

We think the explanation for the decline is simply that people do not believe in God any more, with violence raging across the Earth and the economy in a bad way it's easy to understand peoples lack of faith. In our judgment 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 stand for in our Dinas Powys community then it's truly amazing figures are going down. Surely we all want our Dinas Powys to be a good location to live, where inhabitants 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 Dinas Powys church and plea for change, you want to assist, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your district chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because hardly anybody wants to work to a better 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 neighborhood schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of people such as the lonely, feeble 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 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 recently resigned after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, considering 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 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's a diversion that can keep children pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
