Christmas Through The Keyhole

By St Stephen’s Church.

Last year we were delighted to welcome 300 local school children on our interactive journey through the Christmas story. We began the story on Christmas Eve where we discovered an old, dusty, box full of wooden characters such as shepherds, kings, donkeys and a feeding trough complete with . . . ‘a baby’! We set off around the church searching for the different characters, trying to work out how they all came to be together; after all, it’s not every day that kings and shepherd boys mix together is it? We visited the home of a young girl called Mary, a workshop with lots of tools and wood shavings everywhere, and a sumptuous tent complete with Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. As we traveled around we picked up clues as to who would live in these places and, more importantly, where they had gone!

There will be open slots on Wednesday 29th November every 15 minutes from 4.30pm, last entry is 6pm, with refreshments available for adults.
