A NEW four-minute film has been released to support the Church of England’s “At The Heart of Christmas” campaign.

Individuals, families, and small groups talk about the importance of  and its preparation. They include the Patelia family, in West London, who says that, at the heart of Christmas, is God’s love.

Others in the film include the Revd Tasha Critchlow, a hospital chaplain in London, who speaks about the challenges of the past 18 months; children from St Thomas Cantilupe C of E Academy in Hereford; and Kim Rowbotham, from Kettering, who speaks about bereavement and the loss of her daughter.
