I won’t begin with a countdown to Christmas but suffice to say the conkers have already dropped and the leaves are rapidly turning colour so we know it won’t be long before Advent and then Christmas is here! At Christian Aid, much of our focus this year has been on the refugee situation around the world and the underlying causes of that and we’ll be seeking to explore that further over the Advent and Christmas period. We’ll be telling stories of individuals like Angelique and Celestin from the DRC who’ve survived extraordinarily tough situations and now stand in need of our prayerful support to move on in their journey towards hope and being able to help others once more.
By following the links below you can see more details about our Christmas appeal and find some fabulous new resources, like our mindful Advent candle colouring in and an Advent wreath candle lighting liturgy, as well as other resources, including a school assembly and prayers for use in candlelit carol services.
