A Gift for All
All the Church of England schools in the Diocese have received copies of a brand new musical nativity, A Gift for All, written by our own advisers Kathryn Wright and Gill Hipwell.
Written to celebrate the 200th anniversary of The National Society, the character of Joshua Watson, a founder member of the society, provides a commentary. For community schools there is a simple adaptation, allowing Joshua Watson to be omitted altogether or to be replaced by a different commentator. The accompanying resources include an alternative version narrated by Edith Cavell. If you work with a community school and would like a copy of this nativity to share with them we would be delighted to send you one.
The nativity play includes six songs, has a total running time of 30 minutes and is suitable for using in churches as a crib service.
This resource forms part of a wider project on Big Cribs, an Advent exhibition of crib scenes in market towns across the diocese. More information on this will be available in early October.
