Neath Church

Neath Church in West Glamorgan has many churches for diverse religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is regular for a town to have more than one church and Neath is no exception.

Regrettably church attendance has been dropping for the last 50 years in the UK, with 15% of the populace presiding at least once every month, in spite of everything Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the people.

We think the basis for the decline is in simple terms that people do not have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the world and the economy in a bad way it is straightforward to understand peoples lack of faith. In our estimation 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 contemplate on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Neath community then it is actually astounding numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Neath to be a splendid place to inhabit, where persons get along, they help each other in times of hardship 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 Neath 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. This country is on its knees because hardly a soul desires to work to a better goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get together and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have collaborated with other organisations such as local schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of people such as the lonely, poor 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 in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, scores 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 walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, bearing in mind his anti-gay language 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 place 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 children was to find the oldest memorial..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep children smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the graveyard.
