At Kingsley this year something special and new is happening. Following our Nativity Play during Messy Church, the main characters will be dispersing throughout the village. A shepherd puppet will be peeping out of a window, a donkey puppet might be found in a doorway.
People attending the Nativity will be given a “Nativity Hunt” sheet in order that each puppet is found. Who knows where baby Jesus will be….? Well don’t let on to the children but he might not turn up until Christmas day!
This initiative is our strategy to keep Jesus at the heart of Christmas this year, and to instill some wonder and joy into the season. If you are in the vicinity then why not take a walk round Kingsley village and see what you can find.
My thanks to Karen Bulloch for the idea and Andy Lindley for the wonderful image.
