The annual Stable Trail landed at Hope Church again this year, with all new activities.
The Stable Trail is like a nativity grotto! There were lots of people going around the trail learning all about the origin of Christmas.
First, everyone visited King Herod in his palace and met the wise men.
They needed to decode a special message to work out where to go next. The message said "follow the star" which they did and found the shepherds.
While speaking to the shepherds, an angel appeared! The angel told them they must continue following the star. The shepherds had lost their sheep though, and needed help getting them back.
Once everyone had helped get all the sheep back into their field, the shepherds were worried that they were about to visit a very special baby in dirty clothes. The angel told them not to worry! They can come as they are, to follow the star.
While following the star, the ink keepers needed some help to finish making their cakes. There were also refreshments available before and after the trail including some yummy mince pies.
The trail ended in the stable, meeting a very special baby called Jesus! Everyone learned about why he is so special, and that He is the reason we celebrate Christmas.
A huge thank you to everyone involved in making the Stable Trail a reality, including our two special angels who guided the children through the trail! 50 children got to hear about the true meaning of Christmas, and why we celebrate it this year.
