Living Nativity in Streets of Reading - 23rd Dec 2013
Around 300 friends and neighbours joined members of St Andrew's and Wesley Methodist as we walked with Mary and Joseph on their special journey on 23rd December. Complete with animals; a donkey with his friend the little Shetland pony, goats and sheep, we journeyed meeting Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and heard and sang of that special Christmas story.
At one point we were greeted at the Retreat pub by a singing group who heard of our coming and came out to share their hymn with us. Something very special.
