Inviting children and young people to explore the difference Jesus can make to the challenges and adventures of life
Comment on recent media coverage
Over the weekend, you may have seen some coverage of our Christmas campaign in the mainstream media. Whilst we're grateful that our plans to share the real Christmas story with thousands of children have pricked the interest of many, it's a shame that some of the information about our new book, The First Christmas, has been misunderstood.
For us, this is a really exciting opportunity to get the real Christmas story into the hands of many children, and especially those who may have little or no understanding of this Bible story. The First Christmas features a beautifully illustrated retelling of this story which is written in a contemporary and accessible style that children will love, but which also remains completely faithful to the accounts as found in the Bible.
While we endeavour to ensure children with little to no knowledge of the Christian faith are able to hear the good news in a way that is accessible to them, we place a great deal of importance on remaining true to our Biblical foundations. Doing all we can to explore new ways to help children engage with God's word and the unchanging truths of the Bible will always remain central to our work.

The 95 Campaign
It's estimated that 95% of children and young people in England and Wales aren't in church. So we need to step out and engage with them where they are!
The 95 Campaign is all about encouraging and equipping those with a heart for the 95%. Together, we can ensure children who don't go to church have even more opportunities to discover Jesus for themselves.
