Christmas Shopping


Do you enjoy Christmas shopping? Really? You like getting stressed out, credit cards maxed out and at the end you wonder " this gift?"

Take some stress out of Christmas shopping and consider what is really important. Does every member of your family need $100/$200 spent to make it enjoyable or is there an alternative? What is Christmas really about?

Firstly, Christmas marks an event that happened about 2000 years ago - the birth of Jesus Christ. To find out more about becoming a Christian - Find out more here...

Secondly, Christmas is also about families enjoying and loving each other so find ways to express this.

Thirdly, it's about caring for those less fortunate than ourselves - what are some of the ways your family can do this? Maybe contribute to the local Council Mayors appeal, donate time or goods to local charity, invite a lonely person or family for a meal. Once you think about it there are many ways to help.

Christmas doesn't have to be stressful, or expensive, it really begins in your heart and what perspective you wish to take.

Jesus is the reason for this and every Christmas season.

May your family enjoy this special Christmas season.
