For Advent 2019, the Youth Trust produced a resource called ‘Voices of Advent’, which challenged Young Leaders to reflect on four characters from the Christmas Story and how they can inspire us to reach out to others.

Voices of Advent

Each week will focus on a different community pupils are part of: Family, Friends, School, Local Community, Country, World.

Challenge your pupils to Look in and think about each theme, reflecting on words from the Bible, and then to Look out, to speak up, give, act and pray.
