The Crib Service at Holy Cross Church

The crib service at Holy Cross Church  Uckfield has to be the most popular service of the year and certainly a favourite of so many ! This amazing service was  the perfect way to start  Christmas !

The church was bursting at the seams at the annual Crib service which welcomed hundreds of locals and more children than we’ve ever had take part before! It was a truly wonderful service The opening hymn at the Crib service was Once in Royal David’s City, the first verse was sung by 8 year old Cerys and the rest of the children’s choir joined in for the second verse. Well done kids every one is  tremendously proud of you all ……..the children’s choir who performed so beautifully!

All children were invited to take part in the ‘unrehearsed nativity’, where traditional nativity costumes were provided or the children could come in costume) and the Greatest story was told, narrated by the ever hilarious Fr John as Angel Gabriel!

This was a wonderful service with plenty of Christmas carols and even more laughter and surprises! … but you had to get there early, it was a busy one!…..  you could not get any more people in the church which was filled to the rafters with happy joyful children and adults
