Ways to pray through Advent and Christmas individually, as a family, and with your community.
This year’s Advent theme is ‘Light the Night’, pointing to fresh hope and reassurance during a very dark time in our world. How can we practically and prayerfully be light bearers in this season?
24-7 Prayer Great Britain has created an Advent Prayer Activity Pack to help you and your community pray in creative and focused ways. You can access the prayer pack, along with 24-7 Prayer GB’s ‘Candles of Hope’ challenge and other Advent resources from the Great Britain team, on their website:
These free prayer activities were designed for a Christmas-themed prayer space in a school, but they also work as Advent kids’ group activities in church or Christmas crafts to do as a family.
The weeks before Christmas can be hectic, but they also present a real opportunity for reflection, celebration, and generosity as the family of God.
This guide has five creative prayer stations to help you and your community focus on who Jesus is, who we are in Him and how we can share His love to those around us this season.
You can use these ideas in a prayer room, a small group setting, or for interactive prayer in as part of a church service.

From the 4th of December, Lectio for Families will host a ‘Light the Night’ series focusing on the stories of Christmas and helping you and your kids to pray through Advent together.
