Fill a child’s life with joy this Christmas!

Imagine being a child and not receiving a single present at Christmas. Now imagine being able to bring joy to that child by simply wrapping and packing an empty shoebox with lots of little gifts. This little miracle happens each year.  
Operation Christmas Child brings the true meaning of Christmas to needy children around the world through gift-filled shoeboxes packed by people like you. Since 1990, over 113 million gift-filled shoeboxes have been distributed to children worldwide who have experienced the love of God through these simple gifts.
Operation Christmas Child is a great workplace activity – for bringing colleagues together, for getting out into the community, for fulfilling corporate social responsibility – it’s amazing what shoeboxes can do for your workplace. To get involved, simply go to www.operationchristmaschild.org.uk and order your FREE resources to get started.
Many children who receive Operation Christmas Child gift filled shoeboxes will have the opportunity to participate in The Greatest Journey, a voluntary 12 lesson discipleship programme enabling children to interact with the Gospel, through Bible stories and Bible teaching. The mission of The Greatest Journey is to help local churches overseas reach children with the Gospel, to establish them in their faith in Jesus Christ and to equip them to pray for and share the Gospel with their family and friends.  To find out more about The Greatest Journey, go to www.thegreatestjourney.org.uk.
