The Nativity Scene will be put up outside in the High Street near the church, while inside will be mince pies and refreshments to invite people to enjoy. This Christmas Lights Switch On Day -29th November 2015
The Christmas story is one of the greatest stories ever told. It is a story of the scandal of a teenage birth, political intrigue at the palace, the shame and worry of being homeless, a desperate flight to freedom. There are kings and shepherds, stars and animal dung, angels and donkeys. It is the story of hope, peace and new beginnings – even when things seemed to be at their darkest. Get in the Picture’ is a project that started in 2008. It enables all kinds of people to be involved in the Christmas story by encouraging them to participate and experience being part of the nativity in a fun way. After setting up a nativity scene we will invite people from our local community to dress up and be part of the scene. A photo is taken and then uploaded to the website, so that each participant can find their photo – and then print it, email it to friends or share it on Facebook at no cost to them.
