Clare­mont’s Christ­mas Eve na­tiv­ity a live wire

East Kilbride News - - FUNERAL-NOTICES.CO.UK -

Last year was an im­por­tant year for Clare­mont Par­ish Church in East Kil­bride.

Parish­ioners marked the church’s 50th an­niver­sary with a cal­en­dar of events across 2018.

The church worked hard to be vis­i­ble and ac­tive in the com­mu­nity with their events, help­ing to re­con­nect it with the area it serves.

Run­ning from Jan­uary, there were plenty of events right up un­til Christ­mas, which it­self was chock-full with things for the com­mu­nity.

That in­cluded a num­ber of par­ties, pan­tomimes, carol con­certs, and school na­tiv­ity plays, all of which were sup­ported by the ded­i­cated vol­un­teers of the con­gre­ga­tion.

The high­light of this, for many, was the live na­tiv­ity on Christ­mas Eve, which show­cased some real wise-men, shep­herds, Mary and Joseph and real life sheep.

Or­gan­is­ers put to­gether a sta­ble in the church where any­one want­ing to have their pic­ture taken in the na­tiv­ity scene, could do so. These were then printed to be taken home.

Great event The na­tiv­ity was well-at­tended and put to­gether well by parish­ioners
