Join in singing the familiar carols, hearing the Nativity story and worshipping the new-born king at a church near you.

Christians believe that Jesus Christ was the God of all the universe, born in a humble stable. He lived, died and rose again to offer everyone who believes in him a new start in life and hope for the future.

In these uncertain days, the message of Christmas shines brighter than ever. Find out more at your local church.
