Christmas 2018

This year let the Christmas story turn your church, your community, even your world, OUTSIDE/IN. OUTSIDE/IN is a beautifully illustrated booklet told from the perspective of Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, and sages: outsiders who find themselves included at the very heart of the story.

Please note: Monday 17th December 2018 is the last date to place orders in time for your Christmas services and events. Thank you.

NEW for 2018: We've partnered with Biblica – the International Bible Society, and disability charity, Livability, to create a more inclusive and accessible OUTSIDE/IN. The booklet now uses a larger text size to aid people experiencing sight difficulties, and Bible verses from Biblica's NIrV (the New International Reader's Version) for simplicity. 

The Christmas story is full of unlikely characters. Those on the edges are drawn to the heart of the action. Everyone is invited in. We hope you’ll join us in finding ways to share that invitation this year – to welcome people in to the good news of the Christmas story.

New OUTSIDE/IN animation with voiceover and British Sign Language included! Available for download below.

Please note: The file size of this animation is 152MB. We recommend connecting to WiFi while downloading.

Lifewords has also partnered with Christian charity Torch Trust. With a worldwide vision for people with sight loss, the organisation has produced copies of OUTSIDE/IN in braille, large print, and in audio format, helping audiences who are blind or partially sighted access the Christmas story.
