Nativity at Bridgemead

 

Widcombe Baptist Church Sunday School performed their Nativity service on Sunday 17th December; a highlight of the Christmas calendar at Bridgemead for many years. The teaching staff and children have been hard at work for the past six weeks learning their parts and songs, accompanied by piano and guitar. This year the story was told using hand-held puppets.

As part of their contribution towards Christmas at Bridgemead the children prepared personalised cards and hand-made presents for each of the residents and, after the performance, presented their gifts individually to each resident at the service, and delivered gifts to residents who were in their rooms: all were delighted with their Christmas treats.

Karen Tyler, the leader of the Sunday School, commented “It is a privilege for the children and teachers to come to Bridgemead for the Nativity service each year.  The children enjoy preparing to tell the Christmas story through drama and song and love making presents and cards to give to the residents.  We would like to look into the possibility of coming on other occasions during 2018 and would love to come again next Christmas if we’re invited.”

More than twenty children performed to a packed hall of residents, visitors and parents. The residents, in particular, enjoyed the performance. Afterwards everybody joined with the children and their teachers singing Christmas carols. Geoff Weekes, Chair of the Trustees, said: “It was, as usual, an uplifting experience. The blend of all ages reminded us once again, from the lips of children, the real Christmas story:  Emmanuel ‘God is with us’ in the birth of a child who was destined to become our Saviour.”
