The Hope Project CHRISTmas is all about bringing the nativity story back into the narrative – returning CHRIST to CHRISTmas.

Listen to Michael Taylor of Shining Light’s Trust explain how the body of Christ can help make it happen.


  • That the Churches of Aotearoa will always unite willingly where this is needed.
  • That nativity displays will spark conversations on the real meaning of Christmas.
  • That people struggling through this season – whether it be from loneliness, brokenness, family or financial struggles, will find this true hope!
