Getting ready for Christmas
Friday 27th October 2017
We are really excited about this year’s #GodWithUs Christmas campaign. Archbishop Justin Welby says in his introduction to the reflective guide #GodWithUs – Your Christmas Journey:
“The constant refrain of Christmas, in carols and readings, is that God is with us. In whatever situations you find yourself this Christmas, God is with you – you need only turn to him and ask to know his presence”.
Your Christmas Journey, is a series of short reflections throughout December and into early January 2018, introduced by Archbishop Justin Welby.
People can receive the messages as texts, emails, on social media and Church House Publishing have produced a booklet which would be ideal for churches to give to those attending Advent and Christmas services.
Sign up and get your friends and family to join the 'Your Christmas Journey' reflections by texting GodWithUs to 88802.
If you are planning Christmas in your Church please use our resources guide to help you - visit our website page on #GodWithUs.
We’re hoping to see a record number of people visit our churches this Christmas, and our prayer is that the #GodWithUs campaign will help play its part in achieving this.
Last year, we heard amazing stories from churches across the country that they had seen an increase in church attendance thanks to their church joining together with the national Christmas campaign. Not only that but last year’s national Christmas campaign won gold at the Communicate Magazine’s Digital Impact Awards. Will #GodWithUs be even better this year?
We are praying for even more people to pass through our doors this year to help us achieve our goals of Growing in God.
