Videos Online for Advent and Christmas 2020


The Chosen TV Series, has become an unexpected worldwide hit for young and old. After discovering the free series, a young adult of the Sandhurst Diocese writes;
If you haven't come across it yet, a beautiful series called 'The Chosen' with engaging episodes that follow the early days of Jesus' ministry and those who came to follow Him. It has been such a wonderful resource for many young (and young-at-heart) adults I have spoken to during isolation times, who comment on its imagery and the tender reality of how Jesus is portrayed. I imagine others around the Sandhurst Diocese may find some treasures in there too. It's available as a free app. and can be streamed through phones and TV.

The Chosen is freely available via an App, YouTube or The Chosen Facebook page:
