It used to be common for Methodist churches in this neck of the woods to have an annual "Ladies Sunday". As a female Local Preacher, I got quite annoyed at being planned to lead the the services, because (a) I didn't understand what they were (they didn't have them in the churches I'd grown up in), and (b) I thought that they were patronising to women. I expressed my opinoins at the Ocal Preachers meeting: "after all, you'd never have a Men's Sunday, would you?" I was told that, on the contrary, several churches in the circuit did have a Men's Sunday. Presuambly on those days only men were allowed to arrange the flowers, make the tea and coffee, give out the hymnbooks, take up the collection, teach in the Sunday School , ... oh! and they probably made sure that they'd got some random man planned to lead the service.
