Christmas and Advent Resources

Posted: 07 Nov 2014 09:35

It is a busy time of year for those of us involved in worship planning!  But we're here to help with a bunch of ideas, music and visuals to add a fresh creative touch to your services and celebrations.  First place to start is using our Theme search to look at Advent and Christmas themed material. Christmas Songs

This songwriting group which Sam is involved in has recently released a CD of all its Christmas material.  Beautifully arranged and produced without a jingle bell or a rocked-up carol in sight!  You can buy the CD from the site, and get chord charts, choir arrangements, orchestral scores etc.  We are also helping to produce a lyric video for every song.  

"What Kind of Throne" has been used by hundreds of churches all over the world, and for the new recording we've created a lyric video, a PowerPoint and a background loop.  These are all free and available here.

"You Bring Peace" is one of the more involved videos, and includes an encouragement to places or people that need God's peace.  We realised that this could work really well in a Remembrance Sunday service, or as a time of prayer and reflection during a Christmas Carol service.  So we've made the video and a PowerPoint available for download here

Advent Journal

Our Family Creative Journal for Advent and Christmas has been selling like hot cakes!  People have been buying with the bulk discount in order to distribute to families in their church or community.  We've also released pdf downloads of most of the pages, so you could print out a limited amount of individual pages.  We're now hard at work on a follow up for Lent, so watch this space.
