roving nativity

Sunday 23rd December at 4pm For the first time in Hampsthwaite Village, we bring you the Nativity Story told in a new and exciting way!  Meeting at the Memorial Hall, we begin with the Good News of Jesus’ impending birth, we follow on to the Joiners Arms, where Mary & Joseph seek shelter, from there we stop at various points down Church Lane, where we find the Shepherds as they hear the Good News and then on to see the Baby Jesus in the Stable.  We make our way down to Church for the final scene and to sing a Christmas Carol and to receive God’s blessing, after which we enjoy Mulled Wine and Mince Pies (and soft drinks for the children).  All are welcome to join us as we celebrate in this new venture – please feel free to dress up as your favourite Nativity character – but please wear wellies and bring torches for safety.  We very much look forward to this special event – please come along and bring your families and friends – suitable for all ages!
