Paws for Thought Pet Service on Fathers Day

St Paul's in Camberley is officially cool for cats, dogs and other animal friends as we welcome all to bring their pets along this father’s day to our annual pet service.Revd Claire with her dog Anca

There are two services to choose from, either 9.30am or 11.15am, at St Paul's, Crawley Ridge, Camberley GU15 2AD on Sunday 16 June.

The staff at St Paul’s are passionate about pets. Revd Mark and Revd Claire both have dogs. So it’s appropriate, as Claire dons her dog collar, to have a special ‘Paws for Thought’ from her before the big day…

“Ever thought about how much care and attention your pet needs to thrive and grow? 

They rely on us to provide the food, water, and shelter they need.  Anyone who has watched Animal Rescue will know of heart-breaking cases where animals have been neglected and left in an awful state.  These animals are usually thin and often ill because they haven’t had proper food and attention.

We all need food to grow strong and healthy, not just our pets.  This Sunday at St Paul’s we will be thinking about what sort of food it might be that feeds our spiritual lives – so that we can grow strong and healthy spiritually. 

There will be lots of fun and laughter in the service (not just for the pets), and also the chance to thank God for the blessing of having a pet to share your life.  Pet snacks will be available after the service too!

If you haven’t got a pet you can dress up as an animal, bring a cuddly toy, or just bring yourself and enjoy everyone else’s pets! If you have a pet-owning friend, do invite them along as well.  All are welcome!”
