The Church of England have launched their annual Christmas campaign.

Following a series of difficult Christmases, churches across the Church of England will be hoping that 2022 offers a chance to welcome people back to services and events that haven’t been possible in recent years.

Discover resources to invite your community back to church this Christmas. The services and events will be specific to your community, but here you will find signposts to the national branding, reflections and more that will help you to invite people into your church – both online and onsite.

With the World Cup final taking place the last Sunday before Christmas and the change in traditions of families since the pandemic, having a more ‘normal’ Christmas will still mean we need to do some things differently.

You can find out more about the Follow the Star – the Great Invitation campaign and the resources available to churches here.

There is also a webinar taking place on September 20 at 12 noon to share more information about the resources. You can find the details on the same link above.

A Church Near You

Churches are being encouraged to make sure that their Christmas services and events have been added to the A Church Near You website. This year the national church will be advertising A Church Near You as a central list of all Christmas events so don’t miss out on some free advertising for your own parish.
