Radio is a fast and effective way of contacting large numbers of non-churchgoers.

It reaches the age groups many churches struggle to attract: 61% of 18-35 year olds listen; it is the UK's most trusted medium; and it gets where churches aren't: homes, cars, shops, offices, ipods, playgrounds.

This year's commercials, where the nativity story is told in the style of a football match and a horse race, are here. Simply click to play, or right-click for the download menu if you want to download the file...

We supply these commercials for free.

But getting them onto the air costs. We recommend 1000 to 2000 for a two week campaign. Which is not expensive if several churches club together, for example through Churches Together groups.

Last year the commercials aired on 175 stations reaching over 15 million people. This year we'd love to air them on 200 stations.
