New approach for Get in the Picture 

Get in the Picture, the ecumenical, evangelistic project which seeks to involve all kinds of people in the Christmas story, has been relaunched with a new approach in 2016

BannerImagesGITP2016In previous years participating churches have registered their events and uploaded event photos to the Get in the Picture website.

This year there is no central website, so there is now no need for churches to register or pay a fee. In addition they are being encouraged to either:

  • take photos on participants' phones/cameras (reducing the need for consent forms as the responsibility for the photos remains with the owner of the phone/camera) or
  • have their own photographer and upload the photos they take to your church's website, Facebook page or a separate Instagram account. The changes have been made both to simplify events and keep costs down. 

Get in the Picture is an event which invites people to be part of a nativity scene and have their photo taken. Since the idea was started by The Light Project in 2008, many churches across the UK have taken part over the Christmas period.
They have each used this initiative in their own way, but all have been able to engage with passersby and share the real meaning of Christmas with them. 

All the information you need to help your church prepare to share the Christmas story in this fun way is covered in the Faith and Society File.

You can also download a flyer to share with your church as you consider this exciting idea.
