Christmas 2019 – The Christmas displays at Nativity were based around the hymn ‘Jesus is the heart of Christmas’ written by Marguerite Kendrick. The church looked very festive. 


The Christmas celebrations started with a successful Christmas Fair.


Our annual Christingle Service was held in mid-December and we were pleased to welcome the Rev Canon Helen Cameron (chair of the Northampton District) to lead the service. It’s the first time we have run out of Christingles – 60 were prepared in total!


In addition to our usual Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Services Nativity held its Carol Service on the Sunday before Christmas, during which Ivan included the theme of ‘Jesus is the heart of Christmas’. To illustrate his talk, we were visited by one of the four candles (not fork ‘andles), from last year and a Christmas cracker. 


It was lovely to have many different people of all ages coming through the church doors during the Christmas season.

Flower Festival & Arts & Crafts Exhibition 2018 - It was lovely to see our church so beautifully decorated and to see the wealth of talent that we have in our congregation, over the weekend of 9th and 10th June when we had our Flower Festival and Arts and Crafts Exhibition.


Our displays based on the theme of ‘Simple Pleasures’ included fishing, reading, drama, singing for pleasure, knitting, crocheting, embroidery, cross-stitch, quilting, felting, gardening, photography, scouting, painting, sketching and of course flower arranging. In the hall, the Residents Association put on displays on the history of Aylestone and Aylestone Park, the Dance School also put on a display. In addition, Nativity had a display to show the life and activities of the church. The catering team fed our visitors with sandwiches and homemade cakes.
