Christmas and Easter presentations: What are they?

Easter Cracked and Christmas Unwrapped presentations are a great way to connect with your local school in a way that introduces them to Jesus and teaches them about these central events in the Christian faith.

Churches all over the country are coming together with schools to celebrate seasonal events. These events are either schools-based or can take place in a church – or even outside. The churches across a community will often work together to help children to think for themselves about Christmas and Easter.

"We have been blown away by how well it has gone and the positive feedback from staff and children. As a secondary schools worker I still have chats with teenagers who can remember their visit to the church, and the positive impression it made on them."

Wayne Dixon, Scripture Union Schools Worker

Children experiencing Easter

Christmas and Easter presentations: What happens?

For an event based in a church, the pupils come with their teachers  for a 90-minute, fun and fast moving presentation of the Christmas or Easter story.

Although every event will be different, they will usually include some individual work packs designed for the relevant age group. There will also be an exciting and visual telling of the story, an explanation of many of the modern Christmas or Easter traditions and a craft activity based around the seasonal theme.
