What makes for an exciting and involving carol service? Bethlehem Carols Unpacked has many creative answers to that question.
Bethlehem Carols Unpacked, published in partnership with BibleLands, offers all those planning a Christmas carol service with the opportunity to create a vibrant service through a wealth of pick-and-mix ideas, including creative storytelling, poetry, prayer, drama and worship. Taking eleven popular carols as its starting point, the material explores the different aspects of the Christmas message and gives you the chance to create a truly memorable carol service.
Bethlehem Carols Unpacked is ideal for clergy, lay ministers, children's workers and service leaders. It is also well suited for primary school teachers, RE coordinators and head teachers, and all those who are planning a carol service.

This is a resources book for carol services. It takes 11 "top favourite" carols from the Biblelands carol sheets, and examines the stories of the carols themselves, the stories the carols tell, and the meanings of the carols. It then explores a wide variety of creative ways of using the carols in the context of a carol service, as well as ideas and resources for use alongside the carols, exploring their themes and narratives, and including poems, dramas, prayers, and readings. There are special sections about involving children - including the under 5s - in the carols, and for linking the carols to Biblelands projects. There is a very large number of resources and ideas of all kinds in this book, to suit all kinds of carol services. There is even a brief history of carols and carol singing. Whilst I read it from cover to cover in order to review it, it's very much a mix-and-match, dip-in sort of book.
