Christmas and Advent Material

Christmas and Advent Material

Posted: 17 Oct 2013 12:20

Over the past five years we've amassed a pile of free Christmas and Advent resources to share with y'all.  Do browse around to see the kinds of things you could make use of this year.  Below are a few of our favourites:

Christmas Fractal Images and Video Loops
These beautiful pics and movies by Richard Lyall are always popular.

Advent Candle liturgies by Sam, Kieran and Angela
Simple enough prayers for all ages, with visually stimulating PowerPoints to use when lighting your candles.  Or try this slightly more involved one by Chloe.

Interactive Christmas/Advent readings
Get the congregation involved in the proclaimation of scripture.

Hear the Angels' Song
We used this in our church last year with the children's choir - it is fantastic!  

Creative Carol Arrangements
Well-known carols but set in alternative arrangements: for the choir needing a new challenge!

There are also drama scripts, videos, craft activities, mp3s... and much more!  

If you're looking for new worship songs (including choir and orchestral arrangements) then you'll love the selection from our buds at RESOUNDworship.org
