Drawing inspiration from the well-known carol “We Three Kings”, the Follow The Star app offers daily reflections for each day between Christmas Day and Sunday 5 January. Each one includes a picture, a short Bible passage, a simple prayer and a challenge to reflect or act differently.
The FollowTheStar app can help you:
- Find a few minutes each day of Christmas to pause and reflect
- Read a welcome from Archbishops Justin Welby and John Sentamu and a sample day's material
- Read or listen to 12 days of brand-new reflections, written and read by Mina Munns
- Find Christmas services and events near you thanks to AChurchNearYou.com
- Explore daily Christmas family activities to help all ages engage with the daily themes of Follow The Star.
Wherever you are on your own journey, Follow The Star will help you see your life afresh through the light of the Christmas star, a sign of God’s hope and promises.
The #FollowTheStar app has been developed by the team responsible for the award-winning 2018 #LiveLent app and Church of England Alexa Skill. It is based on the 2019 booklet from Church House Publishing, Follow The Star: 12 Days of Christmas Wonder by The Revd Mina Munns, who is Pioneer Minister in the Diocese of Newcastle and runs the Flame Creative Children’s Ministry website.
It also offers suggestions on going further, with links to resources and sources of help for the next stage on your faith journey.
#FollowTheStar is the Church of England’s Christmas campaign. Thousands of Christmas services and events are taking place in churches all over the country. Find your nearest and get involved at http://www.AChurchNearYou.com.
The app is free to download and does not offer any in-app purchases or subscriptions.
