How to use the Inclusive Church Advent Calendar

Welcome to our online Advent Calendar, which we have created to spread the word about Inclusive Church within the Diocese of Durham and further afield. How you wish to use the calendar is entirely up to you; we have a couple of practical ideas you can try, but first let's go back to basics.

There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus

Galatians 3:28

Jesus himself moved among those from all walks of life, from the wealthy to the lowest in society. This Advent as we prepare for the birth of our Saviour, let us all try to be just a little bit more Christ-like. Let us consider how we could not just open our hearts and churches, but how actively we can call out and welcome everyone in.

"Truly I tell you, just as you did it one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me"

Matthew 25:40

Some ideas for how you might use the Advent Calendar

Set aside 5-10 minutes each day at a particular time. It doesn't matter if it is first thing in the morning, last thing at night, as you eat your lunch at your desk, while breastfeeding at 2am, or as you are cooking dinner.

We have a couple of extra challenges you might like to try:

Thank you and good luck!
