What’s that hiding amongst the displays in the shops of Downend High Street this Christmas? A donkey? A sheep? An angel?

Join our Christmas Trail to search the High Street shop windows, find the Nativity characters, scan the QR code and watch videos of the Christmas story.

You can get hold of a Trail map from local shops, from our Facebook event or download below.

The Trail will lead you finally to Christ Church Downend off Downend Road, where you can visit the Crib scene from Monday 21st to Wednesday 23rd 10am -2pm and Thurs 24th Dec from 10am -12.30pm.  You can enter the church and pass through to view the Crib scene and take photos.

The videos feature children from Christ Church Downend singing carols and telling the story. Children from Christ Church Junior School have supplied illustrations.

We hope this will brighten your Christmas as you enjoy travelling through the story, just like the wise men, the shpherds and Mary and Joseph.

Please observe current COVID safe guidelines for shopping areas and inside the church. (Masks to be worn in the church by 11 and over. Children must stay with parents/ carers.)
