The West Haddon Nativity Trail - Finding Baby Jesus

The West Haddon Nativity Trail - Finding Baby Jesus

Posted: Tue, 24 Nov 2020 12:36 by Gill Wells

Here is a way to get ready for Christmas and remember the Christmas story. Each one of us has favourite bits of the Christmas story. If we each put that into our window or our front garden for everyone to see we can share our own special "take" on the Christmas story.

Would you like to be part of this? Chose an aspect of the Nativity story that you would like to share. This could be a story from the Old Testament about God promising to send His Son into the world; it could be part of the story told in the New Testament; or just one element of the story: for example a sheep, a star, an angel. You could use paper or card, wood, plastic, Lego bricks or whatever your favourite medium is. Find a place, a window or part of your garden, where you can put this on display. You might like to put in a bug or a mouse or another small creature. I'm sure they were there in the stable where Jesus was born. More »

Then let me know where you live and the name of your scene. I will make a map of all the roads in the village where these can be viewed and distribute them so that everyone can visit and see what you have made.

Do you need some help with ideas of what to do? You could look in the Church porch where I will put some pictures of the Nativity story and from Wednesday 25th there will be a picture each day of a part of this story on West Haddon Live

The displays should go up by December 17th but I need to get the map ready and distributed as soon as possible so please let me know by Monday, December 7th if you would like to take part.

A map can be down loaded from West Haddon Live facebook page; a hard copy obtained from the church porch; or from Sue Tringham, 4 Guilsborough Road.

For further details please contact:- Sue Tringham on 01788 510275. » Less
