Church brings new twist to the story of the nativity

Have your say

It’s the nativity, but not as you know it...

A new twist on the story of Christmas is set to give families a treat at a Sheffield church.

The Messy Nativity will take place at Greenhill Methodist Church in School Lane on Saturday, December 7.

Churchgoers and members of the community have promised visitors they are in for an extra-special treat. They will be greeted by the Three Wise Men when the show gets underway at 2pm, before they are taken on a narrative walk through a makebelieve Bethlehem.

Real-life traditional nativity animals - including donkeys and sheep - are being provided by Graves Park Animal Farm.

There will be a market, singing, arts, crafts and other activities on offer throughout the day.
