It's director of communications says the corporation will present a "basic diet" of content, predominantly limited to screening live church services.
Speaking to The Times, Rev Arun Arora, said: "The BBC's Christmas TV output, an opportunity to explore innovative religious programming, contains precious little in terms of originality."
Rev Arora also criticised BBC One's 2016 Christmas advert, which features a cover by Lucy Rose of the Shakin' Stevens song Merry Christmas Everyone, of leaving "no room for any reference to Jesus".
The former-employment lawyer also suggested the broadcaster shake-up it's religious content in a way similar to a revamp of its science content.
He added: "Outside the Christmas season, some of the BBC's religious output is so tired and formulaic it belongs to a different decade of programming."
A BBC Spokesperson told Premier: "The BBC takes its commitment to religious programming incredibly seriously and offers unrivalled output throughout the year and particularly around the festivals.
"This Christmas there is a wide range of original religious programmes on the BBC, from Christmas Big Sing on BBC One to live concerts marking the different festive traditions on BBC Radio 3, meaning there is something for everyone this festive season.
"We've also said we want to do even more over the next Charter to reflect the role of religion in modern Britain."
