The second Sunday of Advent also happens to be the second Sunday of December, and the monthly shared Troon Church of Scotland morning service will take the form of a Pop-Up Nativity.
For the first time ever, the combined Sunday Schools of Portland, St Meddan’s and Troon Old Parish Churches will participate in a joint venture: leading the joint congregation in retelling the story of Jesus’ birth.
“Leading” is a very carefully-chosen word, because this will be an all-age nativity in which all members of the congregation are invited to participate. Adults can even choose to dress up as a shepherd or angel if they want…!
With congregational singing, input from the Troon Church of Scotland Choir, prayers, readings and maybe a special song from the children, it will be a chaotic, joyful occasion.
Sunday 10th December, 10:30am at Portland Parish Church.
