No Rehearsal Nativity

Everyone loves a nativity play but they take so much work! That’s why this year we held a No Rehearsal Nativity. It does exactly what it says.

The whole church was invited to come dressed up as any character from that first Christmas and then join in as the story was told.

Chairs were moved to create a big stage and everyone watched as Joseph and Mary came to Bethlehem, Jesus was born among the animals, angels visited shepherds, and the wise ones (kings and queens) brought their gifts to worship the newborn king.

As we sang carols together we wondered again at the amazing news that God had come among us in this baby boy.
