Claremont’s Christmas Eve nativity a live wire
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
