The Bethlehem Experience

The Bethlehem Experience saw around four hundred people taking a tour through the story of the first Christmas. It took place over  Friday 4th and Saturday 5th December at St Mary's Church.

Classes from Radipole, St John's, Westfield and Thornlow schools were among the visitors. They were able to chat with Isaiah about his prophecies, listen to a Cow and a Donkey tell of the baby born in their manger and meet a rather scary King Herod. They also saw a video featuring the Monday youth group and delivered their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to Mary and Jesus.

All the actors and tour guides came from many different churches around Weymouth.

Comments from children included, "Can I come again next year?" and "I've had the best day ever"
