Nativity from Scratch

Whether crafty or foody, dramatic or musical - or if they just love Christmas - your child will have a great time at our Nativity from Scratch event!

We welcome any 4-12-year-olds. It's absolutely free! All the details and sign-up form are below.

What is it?

Our volunteers spend the whole day with the kids doing loads of fantastic activities:

  • Rehearsing songs, drama and lines
  • Decorating the room with our own Christmas crafts
  • Playing some big games together
  • Making some Christmas refreshments for the performance
  • Making personalised Christmas merchandise to take home

So don't worry if your child isn't passionate about being a star in the nativity - they're welcome to come along and be set-designer, refreshments connoisseur, craft whizz, or helpful stage hand! 

Who is it for?

Any child from 4 to 12 years old. And it's absolutely free!

When is it?

Sunday 15th December. Registration is from 9:45am - 10am. Parents are invited to watch our nativity performance as part of a carol service at the end of the day. Join us at 2:30pm for refreshments with a 3pm start. 

Where is it?

It's at Newcastle School for boys Senior Site*, 34 The Grove, NE3 1NH which is where Christ Church Gosforth normally meet.

What do I need to bring?

Please bring a packed lunch with you, and dress in a plain, all-black outfit. Trousers/leggings preferred.
