Last week, Brian D'Arcy looked at the contribution from women to the life of the Christian Church. This week, he turns his attention to the role of men. Whilst many hold positions of power and leadership, churches are working hard to attract more men into the pews where male attendance is particularly low.
Music comes from the choir and congregation of St Andrew's Church, West Tarring, featuring the voice of this year's BBC Radio 2 Young Chorister of the Year, Jacquelyne Hill. Hymns include "Christ for the world we sing" and "Glorious things of thee are spoken". The musical director is John Wardle and the organist Richard Axtell.
