Advent and Christmas Videos

It is that time of year again when I begin to post Advent and Christmas videos for those putting together their Term 4 chapels.  If you have any great videos put a link in the comments section.

There are five of these powerful videos at the Shift Worship YouTube channel. 

There are also some other beautiful Advent videos at Shift like this one:

St Paul's Arts and Media has made some great films with children and young people. See the one below.

This animated video created by the Bible Society is suitable for younger students.

More to come in following days.

Preparing for Advent Chapel?

As Term 3 wraps up chaplains might be putting their minds to Term 4 chapels and the seasons of advent and Christmas. Over the next few weeks there will be a focus on resources for this.

To begin here are some quick links that provide prayers for Advent that might be useful in putting together chapel services.

The Community of Aidan and Hilda in Australia have this beautiful litany.

FaithandWorship.com also have a range of Advent Prayers

The Rev'd Bosco Peters from New Zealand has some beautiful Advent wreath prayers.

And of course textweek.com has a ton of Advent resources.

Religious Short Film Prize

Applications are now open for the Religious Short Film Prize run by the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture. The prize is $5000.

This is a great opportunity for Christian schools to encourage their media students to show case their skills and at the same time explore religion and spirituality.
