Advent and Christmas resources

Following a series of difficult Christmases, churches across the Church of England will be hoping that 2022 offers a chance to welcome people back to services and events that haven’t been possible recently.

Discover resources to invite your community back to church this Christmas. The services and events will be specific to your community, but here you will find signposts to the national branding, reflections and more that will help you to invite people into your church – both online and onsite.

With the World Cup final taking place the last Sunday before Christmas and the change in traditions of families since the pandemic, having a more ‘normal’ Christmas will still mean we need to do some things differently.

The theme for 2022: Follow the Star – The Great Invitation

In line with feedback from dioceses and parishes, the Church of England are returning to the very popular Follow The Star branding used in two previous years to encourage people to attend their local church at Christmas and to take the next step on their journey of faith. 

The team will be developing new resources for 2022 which will work alongside material from previous years, with a focus on The Great Invitation - encouraging everyone to share the joy of gathering together to celebrate the birth of Jesus with their family, friends and neighbours - especially after two years where this has been impossible for many.
