The 2021 Advent Box for churches to send out to families is called Come & See. Like last year’s kit, it is filled with activities: a weekly ‘envelope’ full of games, things to do, items to explore, things to think about and things to pray about; a jam-packed A4 activity book; a series of stained glass Christmas designs to colour in and place on your windows; a series of acetates with images of the Christmas story with a viewer that can be made from the cardboard box; a countdown to Christmas spiral with foil stickers; sheets of paper and card for the crafts, as well as gold and silver stars; and resources for churches to use.
There are also additional things to do available to download and to print off on the URC Children’s and Youth web pages, www.urc.org.uk
The boxes will be sent out from late October but pre-orders are now being taken.
There are two options – a DIY kit which you can make up yourself or with a group of volunteers at your church, which will allow you to add additional items, or a kit that’s been made up.
There are also bulk packs of both versions available. Please select the amount of kits needed from the drop down list. You can add multiple items to get to the number you wish to order.
All orders must be placed via the URC Bookshop website. If you are ordering for a church that does not have a credit or debit card, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for options.
