The cards, created in collaboration with London-based web design agency Rechord, feature traditional Christmas images, including the journey of the three wise men.

Each card can be downloaded for free by Facebook users and sent with a personalised message.

Recipients will receive links to a number of websites, along with the card, to find out more information about their local churches and the Christian faith.

The Bishop of Willesden, the Rt Rev Pete Broadbent, who has a page on Facebook, said Christmas was the perfect time to get the Christian message across.

He said: "[Facebook] is a quick and easy way for people to stay in touch and the Church needs to use websites like this to reach out to as many people as possible.

"These virtual cards are a simple idea but I hope they capture the imaginations of Christians across the country who want to spread the life-changing message of their faith among their friends."
