Many of us have concerns about Halloween, both in spiritual terms and the unpleasantness and commercialisation of the season. Here are a few things you could do:
- Speak or write to the manager of your local Supermarket, expressing your concern at the unpleasant and scary items they are selling alongside groceries.
- Gently discourage your local schools, Brownies, Cubs, and so on from holding Halloween events.
- Work as a church or group of churches to put on an alternative event such as a ‘Light Party’.
The book ‘Better than Halloween’ ISBN-13: 9780715141014, published by Church House Publishing, is full of ideas and suggestions to make the season fun, bright and positive. It comes with a CD Rom of ideas,. images, posters and decorations.

A book, ‘Ready to Share One Bread’ gives a great deal of ideas and resources to help churches move forward with children and communion. It is published by SPCK.
