Father's Day

On Sunday it was Father's Day. At St Paul's we took the opportunity to mark this day by praying for all the men, especially the Dad's in our congregation.
The news in the past week reported the 'desert' of fathers in children's lives today. Statistics show the importance of having a father, a positive male role model in the life of a child.
As well as praying we gave all the men a gift, a bar of chocolate that has been advertised with the slogan 'its not for girls'!
At our evening prayer meeting we prayed for home and family life and for the work of the Mothers Union, Care for the Family and others who work tirelessly to support and uphold marriage and family life.
