Nativity Trail



Nativity Trail Competition

Organiser Sarah White writes:-

This December churches across the city will be displaying pictures of nativity characters in their windows, individuals will be encouraged to seek out all of the characters and hear more of the story on their way.  But we need your help!  We need pictures of nativity characters to put into the windows.  So we have launched a competition for you to draw or paint pictures of nativity characters which will be either displayed in church windows, be used in the advertising and/ or form part of a collage on our website about the trail.

We need pictures of the following characters

Mary Joseph Jesus (baby) Angel
Shepherd Wise man Donkey Sheep
Camel Herod Inn keeper  

If possible please email a high quality photo of your picture to us at, however if you would prefer to post it or drop it around then our address is 19, Crosbie Road, CV5 8FX.

We are really keen to have a variety of different styles and ethnicity of characters, but if they can be bold and clear so that they can easily be seen in a church window that would be great.

Please understand that there are not winners like in usual competitions, but this is about taking part and all of the pictures will be used in some way.  We are encouraging everyone to get involved, from young children to the oldest of us all.  You are also welcome to submit more than one picture - but please make sure they all just include one character.

Deadline - unfortunately as I need to get these printed and delivered to the churches I can only give you 2 weeks to do this!  Please ensure your pictures get to me by Sunday 29th November!

Thank you for taking part.
