The vision for Shine Your Light is that the whole church across England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic stand united to share the Gospel to the whole of society this Christmas. Every local church and believer is being encouraged to be a light to shine to brighten up the whole country like a Christmas tree. If you want to find out more CLICK HERE to visit the vision page.
Shine Your Light will run on the weekend of Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th December but with an emphasis on community events and activities, including Nativities and family-focused opportunities taking place on Saturday.
These events will occur around town halls, high streets, city and shopping centres and other public places.
As we know, many Churches host special events around Christmas. Shine Your Light has a number of expectations we are hoping local churches taking part might want to consider:
Everyone! The number of denominations and national organisations saying ‘I’M IN’ is growing. We love that Shine Your Light is the whole church joining together. The logos of our partners can be seen on our homepage.
Are you interested in becoming a partner? Please email Adam May, Director of Communications for Shine Your Light at email@example.com
Whether you are an individual joining with a group of friends and neighbours, a small church, larger gathering, we’d love to hear what you are doing. Click here to jon us.
There will be a number of things which churches can order, including artificial candles, bespoke booklets and sound files with the official music for the weekend.
All our partners will be sharing resources via our digital resources section for use by local churches.
As plans develop, we will be assisting churches taking part with practical information, such as music licensing, event permissions etc.
