Trinity Methodist Church’s second Nativity Festival was held from December 3 to 7. During this time over 350 people came through the doors, including around 200 children from local schools.

There were different Nativity sets throughout the church which had been donated for the festival by members of the church, both in Leighton and surrounding villages, and also local businesses.

The children spent some time being creative, making crafts with the Nativity theme. They also sang Christmas carols and songs. Entry was free and all donations received went to the work of Street Pastors in Leighton Buzzard.

Catherine Roots, one of the organisers of the events said: “It has been an exhausting week but worth every minute. We have had over 200 children in the church in the last three days. The willing helpers are worn out but very happy people”.

If you are looking to keep the children amused over the Christmas holidays why not come to Trinity’s Messy Christmas activity on Christmas Eve from 4.30pm to 6.30pm, an event for all the family to include crafts, a short celebration service and tea afterwards.

The cost for this is £2 and information and tickets can be obtained by calling 01525 371905. Places are limited so be quick!

Also look out for the Messy Sheep trail in the shops around Leighton Buzzard. Thirteen local businesses are looking after sheep who have wandered away. How many can you find and what are their names?
