Follow The Star
Join the Song

Last December, thousands of churches extended ‘The Great Invitation’ from the Church of England to Follow the Star to their local church in person once again. Helped, of course, by a return to a more normal Christmas, 2022’s Follow the Star saw significant growth in engagement across a wide range of indicators.

This year’s theme – Follow the Star: Join the Song – highlights how singing can help draw us closer to God and each other through the journey from Advent to Epiphany.

"The shepherds were astonished to find the night sky filled with angels singing God’s praise. And before long they were singing, too. Centuries later, singing is still central to how many of us celebrate Christmas.
"We invite you this Christmas to follow the star, journey to the manger, join the song and come into the presence of Jesus Christ."Archbishops Justin Welby and Stephen Cottrell.
