"The school has an 80" TV screen which we put the video looped at the end of the main corridor in the week leading up to the Christmas break so that students could see it as they walked along. Having the subtitles was a real bonus as it meant it didn't have to be too loud as well! Great video, great content, really high quality. Created lots of questions and conversations!"

A short spoken word video unpacking the real meaning of Christmas and what that means for each and everyone of us.
Creative Resources, Downloads, Video & Media
Jesus: Truth or Fairytale is a compelling video that asks the simple, but profound question - what if this story we tell each year was real? Through a creative spoken word, this video unpacks the harsh reality of the Christmas story, and takes apart the sweet and twee story full of fancy dress, tea-towel headwear, and songs sung by primary school children. Faced with the magnitude and scale of the story, the viewer is asked the final question "what if God really came to town?".
This video has been created as a multi-use resource that can be played in small group discussions, on school television screens, in youth Church services, in lessons or assemblies, or shown on phones in detached work. There is both a titled and subtitled version for greater accessibility.
This video makes for a brilliant introduction into thinking about the Christmas narrative, or as a helpful conversation starter.
