A few friends of mine and I came together a couple of weeks ago to put together a series of activities/practices/conversations/actions to help families prepare for Christmas this year. The Advent Calendar is ready for people to download and use in their household. Perhaps you’ve got a number of families in your community who would find this useful, perhaps you’ve a Messy Church community who would like this to assist them to prepare for Christmas, perhaps your own family would like to use the calendar to prepare yourselves?
Whichever it is, feel free to download, use and pass on the calendar to others who you think would find this useful.
A special thank you goes to Emma Parr, Aimee Kent and Daniel Mossfield who pulled together the creative juices and helped to put this thing together.
