THE Church of England in Lancashire’s Children's Ministry Conference, organised by the Diocesan Board of Education (DBE), will take place on Saturday, March 22.

The conference is being held for those involved in children's ministry, with opportunities to discuss, share, worship and be inspired.

Mark Chester, founder of Who Let the Dads Out?, will speak at the event.

The organisation said it aims to inspire, resource and support churches to develop initiatives that will give dads, father figures and their children the opportunity to spend time together, have fun and engage with the church.

There will be workshops to attend and resources to share at the conference, which is open to people from across the county.

Entry costs £5 a person. The conference takes place at The Redeemer School, in Jack Walker Way, Blackburn, from 9am to 1pm.
