Johannes and Thia Van Kessel take roles as a shepherd and sheep who came to the manger to discover the baby Jesus for themselves in preparation for the Christmas Eve Nativity at St. Peter’s Church.

St. Peter’s Church features nativity play

Do you have memories of dressing up  and taking part in a nativity play when you were a child?

It is a pivotal memory for many of us!  And what of watching pageants throughout the years?  Sometimes our memories are of the humorous scenes – sometimes they are of more poignant moments.

In hope of creating new memories and of presenting the truth of the birth of Jesus, St. Peter’s Church in Comox is inviting all children who attend their 6 p.m. Christmas Eve service to dress-up and take part in a nativity play.  While the main roles will be cast and rehearsed ahead of time, any child who wishes to take part will be invited to be an angel or shepherd as the Christmas story is acted out. Simple costumes are provided. The 6 p.m. service will also feature special music, carol singing and a drama in place of a sermon.

The 4 p.m.  service will centre around the crèche. A dramatic reading will help to bring the Christmas story to life.  This service will be one hour in length, allowing people to come and worship before dinner or other evening plans.

The late night service will  begin at 10:30 p.m. with light coming into the darkness. As the service proceeds, each  person will have the opportunity to light a candle. This traditional late night service will feature beautiful music as the good news of the coming of Christ is proclaimed!

And finally, on Christmas Day, a traditional service to celebrate the birth of Christ will be held at 10 a.m. with carols and communion.

St. Peter’s Church in Comox is located at 218 Church St.  For more information, please call 250-338-2925 or 250-329-6416.
