Do not be afraid: Service Sheet

In many places around the world, children’s excitement about Christmas is often tempered by fear - fear of rejection, surveillance, fighting or even attack. This free service sheet retells the Christmas story through the traditions of Christian children in some of these countries. It’s perfect for use at Christmas services or to take out carol singing.


  • Five well-loved carols
  • Prayers for those facing difficulties both at home and overseas

  • Stories about Christmas from persecuted children around the world.
