Planning a Covid Christmas


Tuesday 3 November | 2:00pm

Online Event

Church services and gatherings will be different this Christmas.


Some things are totally predictable this Covid Christmas:

There will be Christmas face masks.

There will be jokes about the nativity scene breaking the rule of six.

And, whatever is permissible and advisable by then, we can predict that standing-room-only, sing-along carol services are not going to be the UK norm.

So, while planning a church Christmas is no small feat at the best of times – this year it feels especially daunting. This webinar, specifically for anyone planning Christmas services, will help you break through the inevitable disappointment and swirling operational questions to see the themes, the ideas, and, yes, even the advantages of a very Covid Christmas.

As church leaders ourselves, we’ll show you how the whole-life preaching model can help you explore what church members may be facing this Christmas time. We’ll also suggest various biblical themes to apply – for one service or all of Advent.

Plus we’ll touch on the outreach side of Christmas services, discussing creative ways your church community can bring something of Christmas to their friends, family, and frontline colleagues in 2020. Whether you are looking for little extras to adapt your service this year, or have only the shreds of last year’s plan to start with, join us for a time of refreshing ideas, real-world discussion, and story-telling inspiration.

This event includes informal discussion in breakout rooms of around 5 people.
