Your Church Can Own Christmas This Year

Joe Henegan | November 29th 2018

Christmas is upon us. The big adverts are out, the high street/shopping mall is super busy and there are snowflakes on all the food packaging. People are expectant. Can you feel it?

Church, now is your time to shine. You’ve got this. You know the gospel, you preach it well, week in, week out. There’s nothing to panic about. It’s going to be church, just as we know it, but more… tingly.

While many commercial, secular Christmas celebrations may be able to outdo us in budget and size, they cannot get near the authentic intimacy and community of a local church’s carol service. Only we can do this, and it's our responsibility to get it right.

So let’s do a last minute check that you’ve got all the pieces in place...
