The Bible Society’s online Advent calendar challenges us to carry out a small act of kindness every day, share goodwill and to make a difference.
CAFOD’s interactive Advent calendar has a reflection and prayer for every day.
CAFOD also has an Advent calendar for young people produced as a Powerpoint. As the refugee crisis continues, the 2016 calendar has the theme ‘Welcome the stranger’.
Christian Aid has a range of resources to download related to its Christmas Appeal for people fleeing violence, including an Advent candle-lighting liturgy, an Advent colouring candle and prayers for Carols by Candlelight services
