The Photographs on this page have been taken at the Benefice Crib Services, held at Holy Innocents' Church Gt Barton and St Peter's Church Thurston on Christmas Eve. The Crib service told the story of the birth of Jesus, through the reading of lessons and the placing of the characters and animals into the nativity. Children and their parents built the nativities throughout the services. The two services held on Christmas Eve were attended by about 160, which included children and their families. The photographs of the children are shown with the kind permission of their parents.
