Everyone is welcome to take part in our Christmas Crib Competition. Download the details found below.

We would like to invite your school or group to take part in our Christmas Crib Competition.

Many children don’t know the nativity story and why we celebrate Christmas. This is a fun and engaging way to discover the real meaning of Christmas.

Here’s the challenge

We’re inviting you to create a nativity scene out of recycled materials. This is what you’ll need to do.

  1. Read the two accounts of the birth of Jesus from the Bible (attached). Try and include as many of the elements and characters you can find in the story. You can get clues for what the models should look like from the texts.
  2. The second part of the challenge is to make the nativity scene from recycled materials and pre-used materials. You can use glue, paint and paper to help you, but all other materials must be recycled.

The closing date is Sunday 5th December.

Bringing it to life

From Tuesday 7th – Friday 10th December, the church will be open for groups to book a one-hour visit and see all the nativity scenes that have been created. There would also be an opportunity for listening to some storytelling.

Then on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th December the Church will be open to the public. Entries will be judged by group namely over 16 and under 16. The winners will be announced at our service at 10.30 a.m. on 12th December 2021. We would love you all to attend .

We’re so looking forward to seeing all your creative entries. If you need any more information, please contact Tim Hackett at tim.hackett@tabspenarth.org.uk.
