Christmas is a key season when Lifewords materials equip and inspire churches to present the story of the nativity.
“Advent and Christmas bring the highest attendance in church by the general public beyond the usual congregation,” says Helen, from St Paul’s Church in Macclesfield, UK. “We seize the opportunity to let everybody leave with a booklet as a memento of their visit. At our Toddler Nativity we give out Meet the Cast to each family. Other Lifewords Christmas booklets are given out at other services.”
“We found OUTSIDE/IN to be so inclusive,” says Naomi, from Christchurch Tunbridge Wells, UK. “Everyone reading it – no matter what their background, life circumstances, or understanding of faith – is welcomed into the Christmas story. There is no Christian jargon, the text is well spaced out with beautiful images. We looked at lots of other options and are really pleased to have chosen OUTSIDE/IN.”
With printed and digital resources, craft activities, and animations for personal reflection, our Christmas range offers something for different contexts and people groups.
