With Christmas a couple of months away, I wanted to explore a few ways that you can use creativity and visuals to transform your environments and help make this season the most impactful Christmas season ever!

The thing that makes the Christmas season so special is its immersive ability to surround your senses.

It seems that Christmas is one of those rare moments in the church calendar, where more unchurched people seem to make their way to church. Be it a special Christmas program or simply the Christmas Eve service, you have a great opportunity to make a visual environment that helps them get caught up in the real Christmas Story.

From snow to candles, the smells of hot chocolate and the candy canes that sit in stockings, the thing that makes the Christmas season so special is its immersive ability to surround your senses.

All of your senses.

Here are a few ways to transform Christmas and make it immersive this Christmas:

The four examples, with further detail about each, are shown in the following slideshow and include:

1) Using a large screen showing snow falling as part of the background, to bring that realistic look indoors.

2) Showing the image of the manger, the place of Jesus’ birth, whether during a Christmas concert or during a Christmas eve service.

3) Look to expand your immersive environment, even outside, or inside your lobby.

4) Work to incorporate projection as an element in your set design.
