Why take part?

As Christians, we understand that Halloween can be a tricky time of year - especially for Churches and Christian families. This is why we've created a Halloween alternative. Pumpkin Heroes™ provides you, your family and church with great Bible-based resources that will help children discover God's love for all of us this Halloween.

We are delighted that our friends at UCB support Pumpkin Heroes™. Keep your ears and eyes open for where Patch the Pumpkin might pop up at UCB in 2021.

Pumpkin Heroes™ was created by World Vision in 2017. Previously Carve a Heart encouraged people across the UK to carve a heart in their pumpkin to turn it into a lantern of hope. Our hero Patch the Pumpkin is all about heart too - helping children in the UK to have a hope-filled Halloween discovering how they can help and care for others.
