Look into the real Christmas

Have your say

Lancashire’s Anglican Bishop, the Rt Rev Julian Henderson, has backed the annual Christmas Starts with Christ campaign in a new video available on his Diocese’s YouTube channel.

In the video the Bishop speaks about the importance of remembering the true meaning of the festivities.

He encourages people to take time out from the festive rush to visit their local church for one of the many carol services taking place or for a Christmas service.

Christmas Starts with Christ is an ecumenical campaign which started a few years ago in response to surveys that showed fewer people were aware of the background to the Christmas period.

There is a website (www.christmasstartswithchrist.com) packed with resources for churches to use.

Bishop Julian said: “The Christmas Starts with Christ ad takes the viewer to the moment where Christmas began. Go and see it for yourself and if you like it – share it with friends.”
