Catch up on how things have been over the past week. Then ask group members to describe one of the most meaningful gifts you’ve ever received.
Pray that you’d be deeply impacted by God’s word and be equipped to impact others in Jesus’ name. Ask a group member to read Matthew 2:1-12. We’re not using videos for Christmas Impact groups, so you might like to read the passage twice.
Suggested questions to help your discussion.
The wise men were not kings, but they counselled kings as important members of royal courts. These dignitaries travelled hundreds of miles to honour the One born King of the Jews.

It’s not unusual for the birth of a baby to cause a stir. Jesus’ birth was no exception!
As those who know the rest of his story, we have an opportunity even at this time to herald his good news. After all, this baby came with a purpose. So how might we, as worshippers of Jesus, share something of his coming with those around us this year?
Here are some ideas.
What are you next steps?
Take some time to plan and pray, and agree the time when your Impact Group will meet next.
