After an encouraging event last year, Trinity Methodist Church, North Street, Leighton, will be holding its Nativity Festival again.

It will run from tomorrow (Wednesday) and culminate with a tea and short celebration service on Sunday.

More than 200 children from local schools will be visiting on the Wednesday and from Thursday through to Sunday the event is open to the public. There is even late night opening on the Friday.

Many different Nativity Sets will be on display, small, large, old, new, even some handmade ones. Each will have an explanation about where it came from and why it has a special meaning to those who have donated them.

Entry is free with all donations going towards the work of the Street Pastors in Leighton Buzzard. Refreshments and activities for children are all included to make this a special time to think about the true meaning of Christmas.
