Share A Gift of Christmas

In a time where your advent calendar is more likely to feature a pet than Jesus and almost half of people in the UK feel the birth of Jesus is irrelevant to their Christmas, the Methodist Church has produced a new booklet going back to the roots of the festive season.

A gift of Christmas is a beautifully illustrated, full-colour printed, 16-page booklet telling the nativity story through Scripture, prayer, poetry and pictures. The resource has been designed as a simple and appealing give-away gift for visitors at festive events or Christmas services, or as something to share with family members, neighbours and friends.

"Sharing the gospel doesn't have to be hard," said the Revd Steven Wild, President of the Methodist Conference. "Our brothers and sisters have produced this wonderful resource which tells the birth of our Lord in a beautiful and simple way. Why not give a copy to someone you know or someone new and begin a God-moment conversation?"

The brand new edition of the highly popular booklet, A gift of Christmas, can be purchased in packs of 50 for £5 (plus p&p) from Methodist Publishing online or by calling 0845 017 8220.

Feedback from customers who've already bought this year's A gift of Christmas has been overwhelmingly positive. One satisfied customer said, "An excellent well presented, well priced and well produced booklet, which we will be handing out to those who come to our Messy Church."
