The Nativity in Kenilworth

Posted by David - December 9, 2013 - The nativity in Kenilworth

Churches Together in Kenilworth thought that it would be good if the Christmas story was told at the lights switch on ceremonies in Kenilworth. There was much to compete ahgainst with fair rides, food stalls  and much loud music bit an audience did gather especially in high Street when many children watched.


The shepherds and angels are ready for action


















Ready for visitors

It was a cold evening so they drew closer together.

The wise men have joined them rather earlier than the story suggests!
