Llantwit Major Church

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

Alas church attendance has been sinking for the last 50 years in the UK, with 15% of the population attending at least once every month, in spite of everything Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the cause for the decline is just that people do not have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the world and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it is straightforward to comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our estimation 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 represent in our Llantwit Major community then it's actually extraordinary figures are going down. Surely we all want our Llantwit Major to be a fantastic location to dwell, where persons 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 Llantwit Major church and demand 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 wants to work to a greater goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get organized 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 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, various 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, taking into account his anti-gay speech-making 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 space to be - a good space to cogitate on the things that are going on in your life at the present time.

A game we used to play as kids was to find the oldest headstone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a diversion that can keep children smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the graveyard.
