Nativity live 2017

Nativity live in Caversham, 2016.

Churches in Caversham will once again join together this Christmas to tell the Nativity story through the streets of the village.

Now in its fifth year, Gosbrook Road Methodist, St John’S C of E Church and Caversham Baptist Church come together for “Nativity Live” this Christmas Eve. The walk starts at Caversham Baptist Church, with Mary and Joseph walking to the Clifton Arms Pub to see if there is any room at the Inn. The Nativity story will then be told at various points along the Caversham streets and parks as the Nativity characters and animals are collected along the way. All led by Mary, Joseph, an angel, two donkeys, some sheep and goats!

We will then have a short time together in Gosbrook Road Methodist Church including refreshments to warm us up!

“Last year we had an amazing number of people turn up and we would like to build on that this year” one of the organisers has said.

All are welcome to join the walk and if you wish to, please do come dressed as a Shepherd, Sheep, Angels, camels or Wise Men.

The event is Christmas Eve, starting at 4pm from Caversham Baptist Church and ending by 6pm.
