Christmas Ideas Galore!

The Certainty of Christmas

In these uncertain times, we can be certain of God’s love,
shown to us in the birth of Jesus.

2020 has been a year of change. Many of the things we planned or hoped for were cancelled. So, this year, our focus is on the certainty of Christmas. In the midst of all that is uncertain, what can we be sure of? We have created a series of resources around this theme, taking into account what our events might look like at Level 3-1, given the changeable nature of our Covid-altered year. Each resource is easy to use and requires minimal set up or materials, perfect for our uncertain times.

Journey to Christmas

This Christmas, come on a journey. Travel back in time over 2000 years, to a small village in the north of Israel. Over the next 12 days we will explore the Christmas story and step into the shoes of those people who were alive then. We will look at photographs of what the places in the Christmas story look like now.
