Live nativity always a treat

In 2015, the Shawnigan Alliance Church celebrates its 12th year of inviting the community to enjoy an outdoor live Christmas story.

In 2015, the Shawnigan Alliance Church celebrates its 12th year of inviting the community to enjoy an outdoor live production of the Christmas story.

The group uses a trio of scripts so the productions are never the same as last year.

What makes this special family entertainment is the inclusion of live animals in the production. And, children can visit them after the show, too.

Performances are scheduled for Saturday, Dec 19 at 6 and 7:30 p.m.

The drama unfolds outdoors, no matter if the night is rainy or dry, so dress warmly.

There is some bleacher-style seating but a lot of folks end up simply standing to watch the show, too.

Inside the church, members of the congregation are offering homemade cookies and hot chocolate and carol singing while downstairs there are crafts for the kids to make and take home.

The church’s Deb Gammer is delighted at all the enthusiasm for the production.

“Every year, we have around 100 volunteers who all grab an end, serving and showing the community the story of Christmas,” Gammer said.

“This year the script is our third in the trilogy and it’s the fourth time we have performed it,” she said.

“This is great fun every year and we invite our community free of charge. Come spend Christmas with Shawnigan Alliance Church.”
