Advent & Christmas Activities For Families

Throughout December we will be sharing a number of arts and crafts activities with you, to enjoy at home, exploring the themes of Advent and Christmas.

These activities, which are free to download, form part of the Cathedral’s Advent and Christmas campaign  Drop Down, Ye Heavens – referring to the ancient Advent antiphon Roratecaeli: ‘Drop down ye heavens, and let the skies pour down righteousness’.

Activity 1 | Advent Wreath

This year Chichester Cathedral built a new Advent Wreath, allowing us to countdown over the period of Advent. The Cathedral's Chancellor, The Reverend Canon Dan Inman, challenges you to create your own from home.

Download the PDF, complete the activity, and share your creations with us on social media using the hashtag #ChichesterCathedral.

Activity 2 | The Star

"If you haven't yet put a unicorn on top of your Christmas tree, now's your chance to put a star on top." #ChallengeTheChancellor and try your hand at making a star topper for your Christmas tree.
