Resources for a Generous Christmas 2022

For Advent and Christmas 2022, the Church of England are returning to the popular Follow The Star branding to encourage people to attend their local church at Christmas and to take the next step on their journey of faith. The focus is on The Great Invitation, which is about encouraging everyone to share the joy of gathering together to celebrate the birth of Jesus with their family, friends and neighbours.

Christmas is a time of remarkable generosity and God gave the most generous gift of all when he sent Jesus to us as a baby. Below you'll find suggestions, along with signposts to resources, to help visitors experience the joy of generosity this year, whether that is in giving, receiving, or both. These additional resources are all in keeping with the Follow The Star - The Great Invitation theme.
