Children reading God Became Like Me

Can your church help us share the real meaning of Christmas?

For most people Christmas is about holidays, family and presents. But what about Jesus? How do we make him known this Christmas?

Give the greatest gift to a child this Christmas!

Here at Scripture Union we have a fantastic opportunity to share the real meaning of Christmas with thousands of children across the UK.

Despite all the celebrations, for many children, Christmas can be a really difficult time – they may be poorly in hospital or their family may be struggling financially and not able to provide some of their basic needs.

This Christmas we're giving out copies of our new Christmas book, God Became Like Me?, to some of the UK's most vulnerable children. We're also giving the book out through Christmas presentations in schools and via local churches.

God Became Like Me? is a poetic telling of why Jesus came and how precious children are to him. It features stunning line illustrations children can colour in while they ponder the words.

With your help we can make the most of the great God-given opportunities to share the real meaning of Christmas
