Christmas Unwrapped


Christmas banner

At Scripture Union we want to help more children and young people to know Jesus. Easter Cracked presentations are a great way to reach out to your local school in a way that introduces them to Jesus and teaches them about this central event in the Christian faith.

Churches all over the country are coming together with schools to celebrate seasonal events. These events are schools-based projects which aim to unite the churches across a community to help children to think for themselves about Christmas and Easter.

Christmas Unwrapped events are presentations for Year 5 and 6 children. The pupils come with their teachers to the local church for a 90 minute, fun and fast moving presentation of the Christmas story.

They include:
• Individual work packs designed for year 5 or 6
• A visual telling of the Christmas Story
• An explanation of many of the modern Christmas traditions
•A craft activity based around the Christmas theme



Children holding comics

'We have been blown away by how well it has gone and the positive feedback from staff and children. As a secondary schools worker I still have chats with teenagers who can remember their visit to the church, and the positive impression it made on them.'
Wayne Dixon, Scripture Union Schools Worker.


The presentations are aimed at children of all faiths or none, giving an explanation of why Christmas is an important festival for Christians.
Christmas Unwrapped was started in Slough Baptist Church by Rev. Jem Sewell. Since then it has been ran in hundreds of locations across the country and they continue to grow…..

Iginting Children's love for Jesus at Christmas

In 2013, with the help of friends like you, we reached out to 30,000 children with the good news of Jesus, through our Christmas Bible Comic campaign. The initiative was such a blessing to so many school children that in 2014 we have been even bolder, ordering 40,000 of our Christmas Bible Comics to be given to children as a gift at Christmas presentations. To continue this work we need your help - £10 could help 10 children in your area hear the real meaning of Christmas and learn about Jesus' love for them.
