#Christmasmeans something to everyone â€“ help us spread the real meaning this Christmas
The Diocese of Guildford will be joining people across the country using the hashtag #Christmasmeans on Twitter to spread the real meaning of Christmas.
@cofeguildford will tweet parts of the Dean of Guildfordâ€™s sermon on Christmas Eve and the Bishop of Dorkingâ€™s Christmas Day sermon to connect with the UKâ€™s 15 million Twitter users and others across the globe.
The Church of England encourages all 12,000 parishes to get involved this Christmas, joining the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby (@ABCJustin and @lambethpalace) and the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu (@johnsentamu) in saying what Christmas means.
Using the site https://ads.twitter.com you can schedule tweets to occur during the service without having to worry about your phone during the sermon.
Simply follow the link and compose a tweet as normal using the top right-hand icon and you will have an option to choose a time and date.
This follows on from the success of last yearâ€™s #ChristmasstartswithChrist campaign, during which over 9,000 tweets were sent using the hashtag in the 12 hours from Midnight to lunch on Christmas Day
