A walk through Bethlehem to
the birthplace of Jesus Christ

Dates for Christmas in Courtice 2017...coming soon!

SCENES ALONG THE WAY

MARKETPLACE

Begin your travel through Bethlehem in the town marketplace. There you will encounter and interact with a variety of vendors, live animals, villagers, and Roman guards.

THE CENSUS TAKER

As Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem to register for the census, you will journey their way and also face a potentially stern and demanding census taker. It was not an easy journey for Mary, who was bearing the Christ Child and due at any moment.

SHEPHERDS, ANGELS, AND THE ELEMENT OF SURPRISE

As the day comes to a close, you will come across very excited shepherds who received great news while watching over their flocks by night. What great news was this and how many angels make up a host?

THE STRESSED OUT INNKEEPER

You have gone through a long day of travel, so it's about time to find somewhere to spend the night. You'll check with the local innkeeper to hopefully find a place to stay.

THE NATIVITY

Here you will have the opportunity to marvel at the conditions of this amazing birth. Music, drama, and spoken word will help to inspire, celebrating this Christmas season.

ABOUT US

Christmas in Courtice is brought to you by Trulls Road Free Methodist Church. Trulls Road Church has been in Courtice now for 42 years. We are delighted to once again offer a live nativity at Christmas time. For many years we were the church in Courtice with Christmas Lane - a drive through experience. Now Christmas in Courtice is a walking tour instead.

Our church is trying to be an authentic biblical community, not easy in many respects but well worth the effort. We believe everyone matters to God. Looking for a community of faith to explore what it means to follow Jesus? Come along on the journey with us. Hope to see you on December 9 or 10!

Blessings to you,
Pastor Brian Bell
