Reach out into your community this Christmas
Comedian and actor Miranda Hart, Sky Sports and former Blue Peter presenter Simon Thomas, and toy store entrepreneur Gary Grant are among those featured in the 2017 Christmas HOPE magazine. This top quality, glossy give-away magazine is specially written to help you and your church this Christmas as you invite guests to seasonal events in your church.
There’s a feature linking with the Christmas Journey resources featured below, and there are testimonies from Christians involved in some of the heartbreaking stories which left the country reeling as tragedies unfolded in Manchester, Westminster and Grenfell Tower.
For just the cost of post and packing we will supply free copies of Christmas HOPE, if you agree to distribute them door to door in your area. If you would like to make a donation towards the cost of producing the magazines, that would be great. Email Sue Jennens to order your copies. Place your order soon as the stocks of these free copies are limited. Last year 100.000 were snapped up within a couple of weeks.
Journey To Bethlehem
Sports stadia, churches and pubs are bringing communities together this Christmas to celebrate Jesus’ birth using new resources from HOPE’s partners Bible Society, Sports Chaplaincy UK and Integrity Music.
You can use the free carols booklet we’ve produced as you sing carols door-to-door, as a flashmob in a shopping centre or in a top quality cathedral carol service.
Publicity materials are available from CPO to match this carol booklet, many of which can be customised. Find out more here. Carol booklets can be ordered in packs of ten (provided by Bible Society free of charge) with a small postage and packing charge. Single sample booklets and a suggested order of service, along with other resources, are available separately from the Bible Society.
If you want to sing outside or by candlelight, then why not get the words for free on your smartphone? Just visit weareworship.com and search for the carol words app, and iSingWorship will be providing backing tracks.
Journey to Bethlehem is the perfect opportunity to reach out to your community with a carol singing event. Use our publicity resources and hold your events in churches, pubs or sports stadiums to bring communities together to celebrate Jesus’ birth.
