New Bethlehem Carol Sheet - and more!


We know the summer holidays have only just started, but we also know from our supporters that churches are already putting together Christmas services and community events, and are looking for fresh ideas and resources that will support your outreach.

And so we’ve been busy creating and refreshing our Advent and Christmas resources for you.

NEW: 58th edition of the Bethlehem Carol Sheet

Now with even more of your favourite carols, the Bethlehem Carol Sheet has been used for over 60 years by Christians across the world to give hope and help with children in the Holy Land.

  • 25 carols (4 new carols)
  • 16 pages, full colour, A4
  • Easy to read large type
  • Compatible with the 56th, 57th and 60th anniversary editions

We have also updated the accompanying Bethlehem Carols Music Book and a double CD – perfect for events without accompaniment.

They’ll all be on sale in our webshop and catalogue in early September.

UPDATED: ‘Peace be with us’ Christmas Resource Pack

Make organising your Christmas and Advent services easy with our FREE ‘Peace be with us’ Resource Pack.

It helps seasonal and regular church-goers alike to explore God’s promised, given and coming peace. And it will help you raise money to give practical care and support to refugees in the Middle East.

The updated pack includes:

  • UPDATED: Leader’s guide
  • UPDATED: Peace-themed worship resources including new all-age talk, creative ideas and sermon notes
  • NEW: Christmas peace star – a sample star with a prayer on the reverse which you can give away at your services for people to put on their tree, and instructions on how to order more
  • UPDATED: Malik’s story: an update on this inspirational refugee boy who featured in last year’s pack
  • NEW: A heart-warming story from LSESD, our Christian partners in Lebanon about the practical help families find through them because of your support
  • NEW: children’s activity sheets for primary-age children
  • Advent candle-lighting liturgy
  • Event poster
  • Instructions to access even more resources that can be downloaded from our website

The Bethlehem Carol Sheets and Christmas Resource Packs will be available from September on our webshop and through our catalogue.

Daily Advent Email Reflections



Let us lead you through 25 moments of stillness during Advent with these reflective emails.

They are perfect for personal use, or great for small groups with prayers, activities, scriptural study and stories from the Middle East.

You can sign up today for our Daily Advent Emails. They're a fantastic, free resource for you and your church.

Here are two glowing comments from Embrace supporters about last year’s Advent emails…

‘I always find it difficult to carve out time for a daily reflection and this gets progressively harder as the Christmas rush gathers pace. It was lovely to be guided through a reflection prepared for me by Embrace.’ Nick

‘Your Advent reflections are very thought-provoking and heart-warming. I thought they combined the spiritual, practical and inspirational in a unique way. I really looked forward to seeing them each day.’ Esther
