Christmas 2020 - Living nativity

Our ordinand Moira McCutcheon presided over our first Covid Safe Living Nativity on 13th December 2020. We stayed in our seats with the appropriate characters standing up but located in their seats (socially distanced).

A special thanks to all our sponsors for the Christmas window displays and of course to the team that created them.

Living Nativity 8th December 2019

Life has its ups and downs and this was the theme for our nativity interactive service. The Good News (Pass it on) The Bad News (Oh Dear).
This was a unrehearsed modern impromptu nativity which both participants and congregation enjoyed.
Reverend Catherine was the narrator and there were very convincing ad lib contributions by some members of the cast.
We even had our own baby Jesus.
Thank you to everyone for their participation.
Reverend Catherine went on to tell us about the importance of Advent when we await the arrival of Jesus.
Amidst all the hustle and bustle it is good to make some time to be quiet to reflect on the most precious gift that we have - our time and how we use it.
This Advent let us ask God to open our eyes and heart to see truth in every area of our lives, and to see God in the face of all those we meet.

These are some of our photographs of Our Living Nativity.

The theme for the 10th February, 2019 was Love.

Jesus loves everyone

We are trying to make our service more child friendly and interactive with songs which the children sing at school.

Whats at the Heart - Love

All the congregation participated by describing "What love is .." and how we could take that love into the community.

Prayer Tree

The children led the prayers which were based on the colours of love. Ribbons were hung on the prayer tree.

  • Yellow is the colour of joy.
  • Red is the colour of hurting.
  • Green is the colour of life.
  • White is the colour of eternity.
  • MAY THE LOVE OF GOD BE IN YOUR HEART.
  • MAY THE LOVE OF GOD BE IN OUR WORLD.
  • John 3:16



Valentine Heart John 3-16
