‘Experience Christmas’ follows a similar pattern to other Experience Journeys in the series such as Experience Easter and Experience Harvest. These materials have proved extremely popular in a wide range of contexts from tiny rural parishes to major cathedrals in our large cities.
Within this interactive way of exploring the rich harvest of land and the spiritual harvest of life, stations display the following topics:
- The Preparation – Thinking about preparing hearts as well as homes during Advent.
- The Announcement – The angel visits Mary.
- The Promises – The birth of Jesus is foretold.
- The Journey – Mary and Joseph make their way to Bethlehem.
- The Message – The angels appear to the shepherds.
- The Gift – God’s gift of Jesus.
‘The atmosphere was wonderful, a real buzz, yet profoundly intense.’ – Parish Priest
