The Christmas Journey

This year we transformed All Saints into a special place to retell the events of the Birth of Christ and take local children on a Christmas Journey.  Using gazebos we took the children on a series of visits to meet various characters of the Christmas story.  We invited children in from local schools, brownies and playgroup and over 3 days we took 300 children on their Christmas Journey.

We started hearing the story of the gift of God’s creation and then headed to Mary’s kitchen to witness Gabriel’s visit.  We then moved to the shepherd’s hillside where they heard the good news and followed them to the stable.  At the stable we heard the story of Christmas Eve from the animals and then on to the house of the Wise Men.  Finally the story of Jesus life, God’s gift of a second and new creation to transform the world.  It was a magical experience and we hope helped the children understand what Christmas is all about.
