Text the Gospel this Christmas
A new initiative is encouraging Christians to tell the story of the birth of Jesus through social media this Christmas.
Premier Christian Media and Church from Scratch will be telling the Christmas story ‘as it happens’ through messages from the main characters of the story posted to Facebook and Twitter, or sent via text or email.
They hope to bring the real meaning of Advent into the heart of communities, reaching people wherever they are, be that in the office, at the bus stop or doing the big shop in the supermarket.
Peter Kerridge, chief executive of Premier Christian Media, said: “Text will be the only way some people will learn about the nativity story this Christmas.
