If you already have an event happening in your church we’d love to be part of it. But if you’d like to do something special, check out our Festive Fundraising Ideas below, or contact us for support with your own fantastic ideas.
Arts and Crafts
Ginger bread house bake-off
Gingerbread houses are the ultimate show stopper. You can have themes, judges and bake sales. Pay to enter and donate to taste. There are so many ways to raise money with biscuits and cakes.
Enlist your children and creative members to create Christmas wreath and ornaments to sell at a Christmas fair.
Invite local children to a special festive creative session. Suggest a donation to come along and make something for the church or their own Christmas tree perhaps. Let us know if you would like any resources to help with talking to children about our work.
Gift wrapping service
Perhaps your youth group could offer a wrapping service in exchange for donations. Perfect for those tricky to wrap presents!
Sherry and mince pies
Charge a small fee to attend and perhaps have a raffle. Why not take it up a notch and suggest your guests dress to impress? Coffee mornings and festive lunch clubs are also great alternatives.
Ask your local council or school whether you could hold a collection at their Christmas lights switch on.
Best Christmas costume competition
On dasher, on dancer… everyone dresses up for a service or even a parade in the street!
Collection at a service
We can provide examples of our work in the UK and around the world to include in your service, or even a speaker to attend and talk to your congregation.
Christmas Tree Festival
Contact local schools and businesses to decorate a tree and display them for all to see.
Why not tie a few in together? How about asking the children to create prayer cards in Messy Church? Or organise some carolling at a sherry and mince pie evening? Or how about a whole Christmas festival with a costume parade and a bake sale?
The sky is the limit and we're here to help!

How we helped Laurence and Leolida
“Lawrence is my little brother that I love very much and I would do anything to help him,” says Leolida.
The feeling is entirely mutual – Lawrence really misses Leolida when he goes to school and comes alive when he gets home. Leolida scoops him up in his arms and kisses him. He plays with him constantly, clapping hands, and throwing him up in the air. It’s the only time that Lawrence smiles or laughs.
Thanks to an innovative new Save the Children programme, Leolida and his mum haven’t had to cope with Lawrence’s illness alone. One of our community health volunteers, Mark, was on hand to diagnose little Lawrence and give him the antibiotics and highly nutritious food he needed to begin his recovery.
