a Christmas Adventure

Come and take a walk through a Live Nativity Christmas adventure for all the family – meet the characters from the story of Jesus’ birth, including the animals!


Date: Sunday 8th December
Time: 10am to 2pm (last entry for the full experience 1pm)
Venue: St Faith’s Church, Lee-on-the-Solent

Entry is free, although we are most grateful for donations (suggested amount £5 per family, £3 per individual).

You will be greeted by carol singers and the prophet Isaiah (who predicted the whole thing after all), and then ushered into church where you will meet the characters from the original Christmas story, including the innkeeper and his wife, the wise men on their journey, bearing gifts, as well as shepherds, angels and, of course, Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus. Using upbeat scripts written by local children’s author Donna Vann, the actors will bring the Christmas story to life.

After this you will have an opportunity to encounter some of the animals that would have been with the baby Jesus (donkeys, sheep, goats) as well as a few extras for good measure (chickens, pigs and guinea pigs). Children can dress up in nativity clothes and get a photo taken as well as stroke the animals.

Finally, you can enter our Bulson Hall and buy some festive food and refreshments (including turkey and cranberry sandwiches, bacon rolls, kids’ meals, mince pies, cakes and drinks; vegan and gluten free options also available). Listen to live music while you eat, enjoy the nativity scenes drawn by our own Sundays@11 children, as well as by Lee 

Infant and Lee Junior School children, and browse our stalls with pre-loved goods and festive gifts. The children can also enjoy making a free festive craft item to take home as a memento.

It’s the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit!
