Nativity scene in St Peter's Square, Vatican

In this section you will find a variety of posters and invitation cards that are designed to appeal to different audiences.

They are offered in two formats:

'Easy Print' means that you should be able to print out the materials on a home printer.

‘With Crops’ means that they can be downloaded and printed by a professional print shop local to you.

The most effective way to use the invitations provided below is to give them to someone personally. People are much more likely to respond to a personal invitation, than just reading something that has been pushed through a letterbox. Some parishes give three invitation cards to each parishioner and encourage them to personally invite three people to the Christmas services.

The posters provided below can be used on exterior noticeboards, put in windows and used anywhere on the church premises that is visible to those outside the church building and / or to people who might hire your church hall, for example. Alternatively, with permission, please ask for a poster to be put up in a non-church venue such as a local shop, library, pub, community centre or school
