The current restrictions on church services are unlikely to be relaxed much by Christmas, putting at risk the popular Crib services in our Benefice churches. An alternative, interactive, Zoom-based service is therefore being planned to take place at 4pm on Sunday 20th December. The service will be based around a narrative of the events of the Nativity, the script for this being presented in 12 separate sections. It is intended that each section will be narrated by one or more members of participating families. This is part of the interactive nature of the service, with the other interaction being the building up of a crib scene by each participating family in their own home as the story unfolds.
The team organising this Virtual Crib service look forward to receiving your expressions of intent and interest in narration, for what we feel sure will be a joyful occasion, as we celebrate together the events of the first Christmas.
