hurch of Christmas film follows one person through life’s journey – with a powerful invitation to everyone to come together to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
After two years in which the festive season was marked for many by loneliness and uncertainty because of Covid-19, churches are fully open and inviting people to join services and other events throughout Advent and Christmas.
The advert was filmed in:
- St Michael and St Mary’s, Melbourne, Derbyshire
- St George’s, Leeds
- St Giles Cripplegate, City of London
The moving film follows the story of a woman who is supported by her local church through many Christmases over the course of her life – from first appearing in a nativity play as a child to growing up, marrying, seeing her own children grow up, facing bereavement and beyond.
Wherever you are on life’s journey, you’re invited to church this Christmas.Our message

Amaris Cole, the Church’s Head of Digital, said: “Our Advent and Christmas campaign this year has a clear message – you are welcome to celebrate with us and are invited to one of our services.
