The 2018 Advent Unwrapped videos, one for each Sunday in Advent plus Christmas, are now available. This year’s videos explore the characters of the Christmas story, each of whom was assured by an angel, “Don’t be afraid.”

The videos explore the themes of the season in an accessible way for all ages and stages.

  • Week 1: In God’s story, you are just right!
    Meet Mary, Zechariah, and Elizabeth.
  • Week 2: In God’s story, everyone is special!
    Meet the angels, and visit Mary and Elizabeth.
  • Week 3: In God’s story, there is always enough!
    Meet the animals and the innkeeper.
  • Week 4: In God’s story, we can all find our way!
    Meet the Magi.
  • Christmas: In God’s story, we all have a part!
    Everyone is ready.

Enjoy the videos at home, project them at church, or share them on social media! Join in the fun using the Advent Unwrapped Colouring Storybook (pdf)and watch this site for the Story of Christmas blogs, which take a more in-depth look at the characters.

Together, let’s get ready for Christ(mas)!
