CHRISTMAS MESSAGES FROM VICTORIAN LEADERS:

* ANGLICAN CHURCH - Archbishop Philip Freier

A much-loved Christmas hymn proclaims: "Joy to the world, the Lord is come! Let earth receive her king." In these words, which reflect the Bible's revelation, God tells us whom he loves: everyone.

* UNITING CHURCH - Moderator Reverend Sharon Hollis

If you are facing Christmas with a measure of dread and sorrow and grief, the good news is that God is with you, alongside you, journeying with you.

So whatever your Christmas holds, know this - that the light of Christ comes in the darkness.

* VICTORIAN PREMIER - Daniel Andrews

Having a roof over your head is one thing, but having a home is something else altogether. So this Christmas, let's remember those who aren't as lucky you or I.

From my family to yours - Merry Christmas. Stay safe, enjoy yourselves.

* VICTORIAN OPPOSITION LEADER - Matthew Guy

At this time of year, Victoria is the most beautiful place on Earth - the sun is shining, our city has a carnival-like atmosphere, and our beaches are waiting for you to come play cricket, your children to build sandcastles, and taking dips in the water to cool yourself down.

Have a safe New Year's Eve celebrating the year that was, and welcoming in 2017.

* AUSTRALIAN CHRISTIAN CHURCHES - Wayne Alcorn

Many go further still, digging deep and donating to those battling with life's challenges. It may do a little damage to our bank accounts, just to show the extent of our love, but that's the reality: love costs.
