Who Let the Dads Out is a national initiative to give dads, father figures and their children the opportunity to spend time together, have fun and engage with the church.
Started by HBC in 2003 when Mark and Su Chester came up with the idea of running a monthly Parents and Toddlers Group for dads and male carers with their preschool children on Saturday mornings, this initiative soon caught the imagination of other churches who heard about it. In 2008 a National Leadership team was set up to resource the development of WLTDO Groups across the UK and Dirk Uitterdijk worked a day a week as the National Development Officer. After prayerful discussions, HBC passed organization of the project to The Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF) in February 2012. BRF also oversee Messy Church. HBC is still at the heart of the project as Tony Sharp and Mark Chester both work p/t for WLTDO and Andy Glover chairs the National Advisory Group.
