Nativity Crib Festival, 2nd and 3rd December

Our wonderful Nativity Crib Festival is now in its 10th Year!

If you’ve still never been come along and see why for so many it now marks the start of the festive season.  The church will be filled with crib sets (over 150 last year) and the variety is truly astounding.  Big and small, old family treasures and newly bought or even home-made, they come from all over the world (well almost) and are made from everything from wood to newspaper, metal to glass and from banana leaves to citrus peel (yes really!).

Beside each crib is a card telling its own unique “story”.  Which one will you like best?  It might be the shepherd from one made of newspaper that had its nose nibbled by mice in the attic.  Or perhaps the olive wood one owned by a local

farmer whose grandchildren scour the house each year for ornaments of farm animals to add to the scene.  Or possibly the one hand made from Fimo by a youngster who ran out of time and patience and who has never managed to 

make a third king?

Tea and delicious cakes will be available in our little “café” area and you will

have the chance to win your own crib.  Entry is £2.50 and children are free.

If you have a crib set that you would like to lend us (it doesn’t have to be new 

and glamorous, the old, tatty ones often have a wonderful “story”) or if you are 

able to distribute flyers or posters please contact Barbara at 'This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.')%3B">This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 01462-421647.

If you are able to help steward over the weekend or to provide a home baked

cake please keep your eyes open for the sign-up sheets at the back of the church.
