Out of the Ordinary
Scratch beneath the surface this Christmas
How can God's extraordinary love transform our ordinary lives? Your Out of the Ordinary Christmas starts now ✨
Sign up for our Advent reflection emails
Throughout Advent we are sharing daily email reflections that explore our theme Out of the Ordinary. Sign up to receive these each day and discover a rhythm of reflection during Advent this December. They begin on Monday 27 November (Advent starts on Sunday 3 December) and finish on Christmas Eve.
Discover the extraordinary hidden in the ordinary
- Hover-over, or tap the scratch-off elements of the images and discover the hidden moments of Christmas
- Read (or sing!) the lines from the famous Christmas carol O little town of Bethlehem
- Reflect on the question as you pause for a moment
🎶So God imparts to human hearts the blessings of his heaven🎶
Look at yourself. Where do you see the divine reflected back at you?
🎶Yet in thy dark street shineth the everlasting light🎶
Look at the people around you. Where do you notice the divine shining back at you?
🎶Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by🎶
Look at the world around you. Where do you see glimmers of the divine?
Listen to our first ever Christmas Single
Be Born is a new arrangement of O little town of Bethlehem and features as the soundtrack to our Christmas film. Stream it from your favourite music platform, or watch the lyric video.
