The Nativity Service is a Sunday Morning community worship, normally given on the second or third Sunday before Christmas Day. It consists of a light hearted depiction and enactment of the events procceding and after the birth of Jesus Christ. It is an opportunity for the younger members including the very young and hopefully a baby to take part in the re-enactment. However practicalities often result in a number of adults with tea-towels on their heads. We may have to be more resourceful in our approach on “Zoom”.
The service invokes a fun and romantic idealised image, rather than one of strict historical or biblical authenticity, but is a joyous and entertaining family occasion. In one nativity service we once saw Joseph carrying in his Donkey!
