Who Let The Dads Out? began at Hoole Baptist Church, Chester in March 2003 when 20 dads turned up to the first session with their children.
From those humble beginnings, other churches started to pick up on the idea and asked if they could set up similar groups. The national initiative started formally in 2008 and the first Who Let The Dads Out? conference took place in January 2009.
In March 2012, Who Let The Dads Out? became part of BRF (The Bible Reading Fellowship). Who Let The Dads Out? was resourced, supported and enabled by BRF as one of its core ministries from 2012 until 2018.
On 1st October 2018, Who Let The Dads Out? became part of Care for the Family.
Today, there are over 280 registered groups in the UK and overseas.
