Father's Day

Father’s Day is a great opportunity to celebrate that as Christians we can call God our Heavenly Father. It’s a chance for us to reflect on the family of God, as well as to thank those who fulfil fathering roles in our lives.

However, amidst the thanksgiving traditionally associated with Father’s Day, we want to acknowledge that in our church congregations there will be a mix of feelings. There will be those who don’t have a good relationship with their father, or who had an absent father. There will be people who miss their dad, and fathers who aren’t able to care for or who share the care of children. There will be men who aren’t yet dads but who have important and influential roles in the lives of children.

We have compiled resources that we hope will help churches mark Father’s Day in an engaging, inclusive and sensitive way.
