Dai Woolridge has produced some brilliant spoken word videos – Joseph Speaks is a great one to use with your church or youth group for Christmas:
Miriam Swaffield wrote these spoken word videos about the shepherds, the wise men and baby Jesus. They are brilliant, we’ve used them with our 11-14 year olds who’ve loved them.
Fusion have recorded them and made them available for FREE download here – you might want to use them in your services or youth events you’ve got planned.
Carrying on the series of great Christmas video clips is the Bethlehemiam Rhapsody – old school but great:
I’ve used it with a couple of groups of non-Christian young people who I work with who really enjoyed exploring the themes from it. Download the videos or the sheet music for free from here.

UCCF produced a spoken word video for Advent and Christmas – great animation and words with a gentle challenge:
‘If you’ve ever felt rejected, excluded or a stranger Remember the One who came down in the manger.’
Gavin Tyte was one of those who led the way for the development of great Christmas videos with this Beatbox Nativity:

There’s an interactive website and book, which could be a great conversation starter.
Jonathan Greenaway gets under the surface of the response that God becoming human ‘just couldn’t happen’.
