One of the most frequent questions I hear is ‘How do we attract men to our churches?’ There are no easy answers to this, but the Diocese of Lichfield’s Director of Mission, George Fisher, gives some ideas on how the church can be more ‘man-orientated’ here.
Who Let The Dads Out? aims to inspire, resource and support churches to develop initiatives that will give fathers, male carers and their children the opportunity to spend time together, have fun and engage with the church. They want to encourage churches to begin running parent and toddler sessions for fathers and their children to attend together. Who Let The Dads Out? is all about creating space where dads and their children can have fun together and is founded on the Christian principle of wanting to demonstrate God’s love to communities. It also provides a way of the Church engaging with the male population.
