Snettisham Parish Church’s live nativity is a tradition that has attracted families each Christmas telling the story that that has been told for 2000 years.

This year the Rector and Church Wardens came up with a new project, the Live Nativity Journey, a festive walk through the live nativity scene to replace the service that normally sees St Mary’s pews packed and children performing their nativity story.

Family groups were guided around the one way, socially distanced trail to see all the animals from Park Farm, see all the decorated wreaths made by local organisations, find shining stars amongst the displays and complete their quiz about the Christmas story.

Pebbles the donkey, ponies, calves, sheep, a llama, goats, a giant rabbit and guinea pig were petted by visitors while carols were playing in the background making it a really wonderful start to Christmas.
