Christmas Carol Nativity Pop-up Trailer

We didn't want anyone in Ashbourne to miss out on Christmas - and it's truth is so vital all of us that we couldn't just let Christmas pass us by!

Christmas Carol Nativity pop-up, December 2020 Because we couldn't run our usual Christmas Carol Services during Lockdown 2020, we took a Christmas Carol Nativity Pop-up Trailer around various streets of Ashbourne, local schools and nearby villages, with a Pop-up Christmas Nativity — 'Son et Lumiere' style. Different areas of the stable scene were lit as Nathan's retelling of the first Christmas progressed, to illustrate each Bible account or hymn. Local people participated enthusiastically from their own doorways.

Our 'Carols by Candlelight' and our other Christmas Carol Services had to be cancelled in 2020, due to Covid lockdown — hence the need to be inventive with the pop-up Carols trailer! Our previous 'Carols by Candlelight' Service had been in 2019 — in the previous decade!
In 2021 we repeated the Christmas Carol Nativity Pop-up Trailer — but we were also thrilled to be able to enjoy our 'Carols by Candlelight' in our new metting place, the beautiful St John's chruch building.

We like to change things up occasionally! One year we started an ABC Nativity Rocks Facebook group. ABC Nativity Rocks This was rock craft with an optional treasure hunt. Participants painted a pebble with a picture or words related to the Nativity and hid it in a public place. Finders posted photos of found rocks on the facebook group, tracking the rocks as they were found and re-hidden.
