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, have come 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. The campaign is active between September and December each year, with resources for churches – including posters, radio ads and worship materials – available on this website for free.
