Few churches in Kohima were opened to celebrate Father’s Day on June 21, following proper protocols of social distancing, while hand wash basins and sanitisers were kept at the entrance of the church. 

A press release from organisers informed that, in Faith Harvest Church, Kohima some members attended the church, while the rest attended through online live Youtube streaming. There was also a virtual cake cutting ceremony for the fathers who were watching online.
Senior pastor Faith Harvest Church, Rev. Shan Kikon said that father’s voice was important for their children, whereby he encouraged fathers to speak good news to their children. He exhorted fathers to be supportive towards their children by giving them positive  thoughts as “in life you will go through difficulty, but do not give up. You have the ability and you can do it.”  
Worship director of Faith Harvest Church, pastor Akumtila Kikon, said “fathers are like the foundation of our building, we usually do not see the foundation, its hiding beneath the ground. But they are the strength and pillars of our families and our hope.”
Kohima, Union Christian Revival Church (UCRC), New Market road celebrated Father’s Day with gift packages and special sermon for fathers. Pastor of UCRC Zhabu Gwirie highlighted how father’s day celebrations started in order to commemorate and honour fathers around the world. He said many people acknowledge their father’s efforts and contributions towards their life, while for some who have lost their father, it becomes a day of remembrance.
