All the children who turned up on the day (plus a couple of parents/helpers) were involved and 10 children aged 3 to 12 were able to dress up and act out a nativity play in the church for the congregation at a short service of carols and readings.   A ‘Pop Up’  play is designed to ensure that everyone is involved and with only 30 mins to dress and rehearse the play is acted out.  It was a great success with all the children playing their parts wonderfully.   Afterwards  the children, parents and congregation all joined together for a lunch provided by the Messy Church organisers.
