What is Christmas about?

There are lots of great things about Christmas. Putting up the decorations, giving and receiving gifts, cooking delicious food with our nearest and dearest. However, when boxing day arrives, all the family have left and the Christmas feast leaves nothing but a pile of washing up (and a slightly tighter belt), we may be left wondering if there’s more to Christmas than this.

Christmas is so much more than a party that finishes almost as soon as it’s started; it’s an invitation to a celebration that lasts forever and to joy like you never imagined it! Christmas is so much more than a sentimental myth; it’s about the messy realities of a real birth in real history. A baby, who grew up to live a life in the real world. A life in which pleasure and suffering, friendship and rejection, acclaim and scorn are all intricately interwoven.

Whoever you are, we invite you to join us this Christmas and hear about why Christmas is more than you think it is.
