Nativity 2020

Cosy down and cuddle up with all the family for a traditional (and very cute) children’s nativity and sing-a-long carols.

For those missing their traditional Christmas fix, Rev Kate Bottley has your favourite carols and the Christmas story to enjoy wherever you are.

As children tell the story of the nativity, Kate remembers some of the nativities she’s known complete with real donkeys and several Marys. Plus we hear how children across the country are looking forward to Christmas and how different they think it will be this year.

All you need is your Christmas jumper, a hot drink and your best singing voice… all together now, “Ding Dong Merrily On High…”!

Producer: Rebecca Maxted
