Dig Deeper into Christmas

Did you know that just 12 percent of adults know the nativity story, and more than one-third of children don’t know whose birthday it is. Meanwhile, 51 per cent of people now say the birth of Jesus is irrelevant to their Christmas. Use the resources from 'Christmas Starts With Christ' to dig deeper in your classrooms and help reverse this trend.


The Norwich Diocese have produced a set of delightful resources to help schools dig deeper in to the Christmas story. There is an animated story that you can use in class and the online shop allows you to purchase various items, including an animated story CD, bookmarks and Christmas cards.
