Christmas

Come on a journey with us this Christmas.

Christmas Journeys

Buckle up for seven days of all-age adventure as we explore the Christmas Story with Christmas Journeys!

Each pack comes with a colourful world map, star stickers and daily activity cards.

Every card contains a Bible story along with some fun activities to help you join in with the journey. Stick your stars on the map to chart our route and then find out what someone from that part of the world has discovered about God through the Bible.

At the end of your seven days you will have been on an incredible journey. Your star covered map will remind you of “God with us” – the amazing good news of Christmas. Orders for our Advent Resources are now closed. If you have a query about an existing order, please email jen.robertson@scottishbiblesociety.org

The Podcast

Join Fiona Stewart as she embarks upon a fun-filled tour through Christmas Journeys. Each day, Fiona will travel to a new location, using different modes of transport to help you to have fun and be filled with wonder about the Christmas story. The journey begins 1st December.

Light & Life

“In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” – John 1:4-5

Light and Life – a newly produced, photo magazine edition of John’s Gospel.

In a format reminiscent of Mark: The time has come, this magazine style gospel contains colourful, contemporary images that compliment the text and magnify the themes of light and life.

This Gospel is ideal for churches to distribute at Christmas events. Anyone receiving it, visitor, neighbour, family or friend will read within its pages a story of light, life, and eternal promise for all who believe. Jesus said, “I am the light of the world…” this Christmas Gospel has been created to bring that hope into homes and lives across Scotland this Advent season, and beyond.

Orders for Light and Life will re-open on 6th January 2022

Advent Reader

Immanuel God with Us

Whatever your experience has been of this past year, whether it has brought struggles or joy, the Bible has something to say to each of us through the story of Jesus.

That is why our Advent Reader for 2021 focuses on the theme of Immanuel – “God with us”.

Each daily reading offers thought and prayer to help us focus on, and trust that God is with us. Beginning on 6th December, the Bible reading plan runs through to the end of the year, enabling churches and groups and individuals to read together right through the festive season.

Biblewold Gather Together

Bibleworld Gather Together is a free, downloadable  resource created for people of all ages to engage with the Christmas Story.

Using the images from our Bibleworld Christmas books, we have produced two videos with fantastic narration from Fiona Stewart of Foolproof Creative Arts. To accompany each video you will find some simple ideas to help all ages engage with the stories together. These can be used at online or in person gatherings.

We have compiled resources which can help you and your loved ones stay in close relationship with God. These resources also equip all who are engaging in virtual community to stay close to one another.
