1st Kexborough Girls’ Brigade are busy rehearsing for not one but TWO nativities at their church.
The girls have been working hard learning songs and acting parts ready for the weeks ahead. The younger girls will be acting out the nativity while the older girls tell the story this Sunday for their church congregation.
Leader Rebecca Bennett says ‘The older girls have also been practicing their nativity using puppets. The girls have had to learn how to make the puppets act while also singing and listening to what’s happening. They’ve also made the accessories for the puppets such as crowns, halos and clothes.’
The younger girls, parents and members of the church congregation have been invited to this small service on the groups last meeting before Christmas on the 12 December.
