Description

Liaise with the police to close off your high street for a few hours one evening, to have a fun open-air Christmas event. Work with local traders to see whether they would like to stay open, provide mulled wine and mince pies, place Nativity displays in shop windows, have a band and/or carol singers - you could even run your own stall with homemade cards and gifts from your church members.

Rationale

As consumerism grows and the true message of Christmas is lost, the church has a key role in re-establishing the importance of Jesus birth. This is one way of raising awareness, by celebrating with the community and making the nativity central.

Outcome

To provide a fun event for the local community at Christmas. To celebrate Jesus birth.
