A Christian presence in every community

Fatherhood Commission

In 2009/10 the Children's Society's Fatherhood Commission undertook a review of fathers' involvement in children's lives and the ways in which this can affect children's well-being.

In September 2010 the Mission and Public Affairs Council of the Church of England submitted a response to the Commission's call for evidence.

The Church of England has produced resources to encourage parish churches to mark Father's Day, as a way of affirming fatherhood. These are available here and include a range of ideas, pointers to a sample service, readings and prayers.
