The Christmas story has been around for a long time, but today it's being forgotten.
Just 12 per cent of adults know the nativity story, and more than one-third of children don’t know whose birthday it is. Meanwhile, 51 per cent of people now say the birth of Jesus is irrelevant to their Christmas.
Together we can reverse the trend
Some of the UK’s leading Christian groups, including the Church of England, the Evangelical Alliance and Bible Society, are coming together because we believe Christmas is worth saving.
Christmas Starts with Christ is a campaign aimed at helping churches to make Christ and the amazing story of his birth the focus of the nation’s favourite time of year.
Christmas Starts 2014
The campaign kicks off on 30 November this year on Advent Sunday. We’re inviting your church to hold your own Christmas Starts Sunday on a Sunday of your choosing in December.
In our Resources pages, you’ll find the 2014 edition of Christmas Starts with Christ. It includes new posters, new radio commercials and other great resources for churches and groups to use. We’re going to be adding a whole lot more over the autumn, so follow our Blog and join our mailing list (on the right) and we’ll keep you in touch with new goodies as we launch them.
Thanks for reading. Please tell others about Christmas Starts with Christ by tweeting and sharing… on and offline!
