Product description

Inspiring and ecumenical, Better than Halloween will help you to transform 31 October into a fun and meaningful Christian-themed event for children aged 5-11.

It includes:

  • an explanation of the origins of Halloween and why many Christians choose not to celebrate it;
  • detailed instructions and practical suggestions for planning and running Bright/Light parties;
  • a wealth of supporting resources, such as photocopiable fun sheets, party invitations, sheet music and sources of further advice and guidance;
  • and a free full-colour CD-ROM of all the supporting resources.
Product Reviews

Better than Halloween suggests approaches and ideas that are both biblical and child-centred. I hope that many more churches will take confidence from these, and begin a new wave of re-christening the occasion to become a positive opportunity for Christian outreach.' - Rt Revd David Gillett, Bishop of Bolton
