Description

The Christmas story has been around for a long time, but today it's being forgotten. 'Christmas Starts with Christ' is a campaign aimed at helping churches to make Christ and the amazing story of his birth the focus of the nation’s favourite time of year.


Christmas Starts 2015


We are inviting your church to hold your own 'Christmas Starts Sunday' on a Sunday of your choosing in December. In our Resources pages, you’ll find the 2015 edition of 'Christmas Starts with Christ'. It includes new posters; new radio commercials and other great resources for churches and groups to use. Follow our blog for more information http://christmasstartswithchrist.com/blog/.

Rationale

Just 12 per cent of adults know the nativity story, and more than one-third of children don’t know whose birthday it is. Meanwhile, 51 per cent of people now say the birth of Jesus is irrelevant to their Christmas.

Together we can reverse the trend. Some of the UK’s leading Christian groups, including the Church of England, the Evangelical Alliance and Bible Society, are working together because we believe the real meaning of Christmas is worth saving.

Outcome

That the real meaning of Christmas will be known

Other requirements

This conceptual idea does not have any additional requirements
