This year the Parish of Kidderminster are centring the 2021 Advent celebration on the Crib Scene.
This is linked to the Church of Englands theme of ‘At the heart of Christmas’; over the course of Advent we will be exploring the different figures and the parts they played leading up too, and after the birth of Jesus.
We would also like you to share your own crib scenes, from ones you have in your house or church, to the arts and crafts you make. So, get out your cameras and help us celebrate and prepare for the birth of Christ. Please send any photos or videos to email@example.com.
