Richview Baptist Church will once again transform into the little town of Bethlehem next week for A Night in Bethlehem – an annual living nativity complete with live stable animals.
The drop-in event will feature a congregational cast of angels, shepherds, Roman guards and census takers, and, of course, Mary and Joseph to recreate the first Christmas. Joining them in the Nativity will be live goats, llamas, donkeys and sheep.
The event, which was a huge success last year, will also feature a number of interactive marketplace activities for kids, including a free leather working hut, a brick chipping hut, a wood working hut, and free photos taken in the straw bails. Kids will also be able to feed and pet the animals in the Nativity.
A Night in Bethlehem takes place on Friday, Dec. 21 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Richview Baptist Church, 1548 Kipling Ave. (at Kipling and Eglinton avenues).
Admission and all crafts are free, but donations will be accepted. All are welcome to come celebrate the birth of Jesus.
