Actually, those look pretty good.
There's no law against using a tripod with a P&S camera, if you want to try that. Most P&S cameras will allow you to use long exposures and/or bulb setting. The same effort is required to avoid shake, so use timed shutter release or a remote release to initiate the shutter.
That church may not have let you bring a tripod in anyway.
Noise is well under control and I can get a good view of the subjects. A big full frame sensor would have afforded more dynamic range and even less noise, BUT you convincingly conveyed the spirit of those places.
