A Christmas display with a difference will be on show at St Albans Church in Kaipara Flats from December 14 to 16, when an exhibition of nativity scenes will be staged.
Organiser Katie Mitchell is hoping that well over 10 different depictions of the birth of baby Jesus will be loaned to the church for the event by local residents.
“Mine is a knitted scene which my grandmother knitted for me over 25 years ago,” she says. “Another lady is lending one carved from wood bought in Italy.”
The nativity scene exhibition will be open from 10am to 4pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, December 14, 15 and 16. Entry will be by koha at the door, with money raised being divided equally between Homebuilders Family Services and the fund to refurbish St Albans Church.
If anyone has a nativity scene they could donate to the display, contact Katie Mitchell on 422 5042 (evenings only) or email email@example.com.
