Looking for a home-grown Kiwi flavoured Advent calendar?
For the last five years South West Baptist Church has produced their own Advent Calendar. Last year it was offered to other churches, organisations and individuals to personalise and use in their communities and around 22,000 found their way into homes around the country.
There is no chocolate, but you’d never miss it! The illustrations are delightful and the message is clear. The story of Love coming down as a baby unfolds with each new window. On the back page is a child-friendly retelling of the first Christmas, over 2000 years ago.
This year’s calendar promotes the multi-cultural nature of New Zealand and the opportunity that Christmas gives us to celebrate together. Our dream is that children and families who have never heard the Christmas story before may be able to experience it in a way that is interactive and exciting.
The Calendars come in packs of 25 and are priced at $50.00 a pack. Orders close on October 15, 2015.
I gave them to the children in my church and the preschoolers in my music playgroup. They were received with delight!” says Kaila Pettigrove, Kids Friendly Coach and children’s minister.
Place your order before 15 October on the South West Baptist Church website.
