“Men want ‘macho’ hymns, fewer flowers and less dancing in church” Says Daily Mail

Interesting article in the Mail looking at what men want in church. Some quotes:

men still prefer to sing ‘proper macho hymns’. Nearly 60 per cent of those who took part in a survey said they enjoyed singing – but added comments showing they preferred anthemic songs and ‘proclamational’ hymns as opposed to more emotional love songs.

And:

Nearly three quarters, or 72 per cent, said their favourite part of a service was the talk or sermon.

And finally:

‘The comments at the end of the survey showed that what appeals to men is doing stuff together – sports teams, fishing, pub quizzes, paint-balling, DIY projects, curry nights, bowling, clay pigeon shooting and going out for a beer.’
