Christmas Resources

Thank you for your interest in promoting our Christmas appeal. To help CBA receive the best response possible, here are three essential things we’d love you to do in your church:

  1. Print our A5 Hand-Out and distribute with your church bulletin. [Download PDF]
  2. Have your CBA Church Advocate or minister read aloud our 60-Second Talk. [Download PDF]
  3. Please use our PowerPoint Slide while the 60-Second Talk is being delivered. [Download PPT]

There are a few more ideas under other ways to help further down the page. Thanks!

Please print these A5 hand-outs to include with your bulletin on Sunday.

A5 Hand-Out

We find people respond best to our appeal when they have a physical piece of paper in their hands.

  • Download the A4 PDF by clicking here.
  • Print & slice in half to A5 size
  • Distribute with your church bulletin

If you would also like to include more detail about our programmes, you can use the bulletin ‘copy-and-paste’ text under other ways to help below.

60-Second Talk

The most effective way to promote our appeal is for someone to take a moment during your service to share about CBA’s Christmas programme.

Our 60-Second Talk directs your church members to the A5 Hand-Out in their bulletin where they’ll find the 0900 80 222 number, and CBA’s website cba.org.nz.

Click here to download our 60-Second Talk as a PDF to read out in your services.
