The Anglican Diocese of London has produced Beano-style comics to retell the birth of Christ to schoolchildren. The church produced the comics to make the nativity story ‘fresh and relevant’ amid concerns that many children just do not know it. The comics can be downloaded along with collective worship and lesson plans from www.londonchristmas.org.uk/children. Packs of the materials have been delivered to the 479 parishes and 130 schools in the diocese.
