Christmas resources for churches

15th November 2023

Christmas can be one of the hardest times of year for single people. In our 2022 survey:

  • 70% of respondents said they find at least some aspects of Christmas difficult.

  • 63% said their church does nothing for those on their own on Christmas Day.

  • 43% said the week between Christmas and New Year is a lonely time.

There are lots of practical things your church can do to help. Here are several resources to get started:

1) Watch our Christmas webinar

Our Christmas webinar is the best place to start for understanding why Christmas can be a difficult time, and practical tips for churches.

If you are single yourself, there are also ideas on how you can be part of the solution and help to welcome others too.

If you're short on time, download the powerpoint slides for a summary of the training content.
