Christmas Parties


Christmas is all about joy and hope 

These are two things which Viva gives thousands of vulnerable children each year at our Viva Christmas Parties.

These are occasions of great excitement for children, where they receive a present, a good meal and the knowledge that they are loved and valued. But perhaps the most important gift they receive is hope. Click here to read about the impact of Christmas Parties last year.

About 70 per cent of children who come to a party have never had contact with Viva before. So come January that’s many more children who are introduced to programmes which will help them in years to come.

And it all starts with a Christmas Party. Not theirs, but yours.

Hosting a party to bring hope and joy to children is the perfect excuse to get friends together to have some fun. And it doesn’t even need to happen in December!

Whether you take an offering at a carol service, collect donations for mince pies and mulled wine after church, or get your children’s groups to make and sell decorations, we’d love your church to get involved. From posters and postcards to GiftAid forms and giving envelopes we’ll be happy to provide you with whatever resources you need, just email Liz at
