Some Ideas for a Crib Sevice

Although crib services normally take place rather closer to Christmas, host churches may like to consider a special service incorporating the blessing of the cribs and the schools / groups / parishes they represent - equally, when the cribs are returned to their home churches or schools this could be acknowledged in a special service, or form part of an Advent or Crib Service.

Crib services re-tell the Christmas story in a variety of ways - through drama, music, poetry or storytelling.   We have asked people to give us some ideas on different versions of this service and these are shown below - if you have additional suggestions which can be shared on this page do get in touch! There are also some services on-line e.g:
