On Saturday afternoon [Dec 8], St Marys Anglican Church in Warwick hosted a display of nativity scenes from around the world. A traditional part of the Christmas season, nativity scenes depict the birth of Jesus as described in the gospels of Matthew and Luke.
As part of their holiday project, the Church was also collecting money to buy gift vouchers from BELCO to assist those who may be having issues, with project called “Let there be light.”
People stopped by all afternoon to see the Nativity Scenes which were made out of various materials including frosted glass, wooden, crystal, stamped tin, china, ceramic and more.
The Nativity Scenes were loaned to the Church by various people, and came from countries including Hong Kong, Kenya, Mexico, Canada, the United States and also Bermuda – as one set was made locally during a ceramic class.
