Boy reading the Christmas story

Help share the real meaning of Christmas with thousands of children

Thousands of children think that Rudolf the red-nose reindeer was in the stable at Jesus’ birth. 

Can you help change this reality, and enable them to discover the true Christmas story? 

Sadly, many children won’t get to experience Christmas in the same way we do; their families may have come on hard times, and are using the facilities of a local food bank, or they may be poorly in hospital. Stepping out in faith, we have updated our popular retelling of the Christmas story –The First Christmas – and with your help, we hope to give 120,000 copies away.

You can give these children a message of hope and the chance to discover who Jesus is. 

You have some great God-given opportunities to share the real meaning of Christmas
