Did you get your tree up this weekend? Started writing Christmas cards? Feeling Christmassy? Well this could get you feeling festive. Yes it’s time to get the popcorn out and head on over to St Paul’s as they show the BBC TV Nativity on their big screen.
The film takes a fresh contemporary look at the birth of Jesus. This new adaptation by Tony Jordan of EastEnders, Hustle and Life on Mars fame, is beautifully filmed in what the The Telegraph said was the “BBC's gentle, compassionate take on the Nativity”.
The story starts in Nazareth, where a carpenter, Joseph, courts teenager Mary. A shepherd, Thomas, struggles under heavy taxation. Magi gather to discuss a great event foretold in the stars. All is brought together when Mary is visited by an angel and told she will give birth to the Son of God.
St Paul’s in Camberley is screening the 2010 BBC TV series (now released as a 2 hour film) on Saturday 10th December at 4.00pm on their extra large screen. No tickets are required for this free event, just turn up and grab a goody bag. Children are welcome. They’re serving refreshments after the film too.
Organiser, John Barker said “This is an opportunity to see a good film showing the first ever Christmas, to meet new people at St Paul’s and to invite friends and neighbours to a film that could be helpful to them spiritually.”
