Map of community events

Christmas should be one of the happiest times of the year for everyone; yet for millions of people across the UK it can be the gloomiest.

While most people are occupied amidst the festivities of the day with their families and friends, some people experience Christmas as one of the most loneliest times as businesses around the country shut their shops, leaving them with no place to go.

For the fifth year running, Premier is inviting churches to add their Christmas Day events to a digital map to help people go to places where they can spend time with others.

The Christmas Alone map shows events happening across the UK this year. Premier has also produced a pack to help churches plan their events effortlessly.

Chris Byland, Premier radio producer, says, “We believe that no one should have to spend Christmas Alone if they don’t want to. We’d like to invite you to share our vision by hosting a Christmas day event for your community. In previous years, people have held events which have varied from having a Christmas meal, a sing along, and even a gathering of people to watch the Christmas specials on TV. Whatever you have in mind, we’d love to hear about it.”
