The Church of Scotland Cumbernauld Old Parish Church
Journey to Bethlehem 2020
Coming soon – a Christmas experience with a difference, which we are calling Journey to Bethlehem.

Placed around the parish there will be twelve posters, each with a picture representing part of the story of Christmas and a line from the Bible relating to that picture. There’s a candle, crown, musical instruments, Bethlehem, angel, Mary, journey, scroll, shepherds, stable, wise men and star. See how many you can find!

Each poster also will also have a QR code which you can scan on your mobile phone.

That will bring up a page on our church website where you can read the Bible passage that goes with that picture. If you click or tap on the picture on the website page you will find puzzles, quizzes, colouring-in, crafts, etc. all linked to the Christmas story and which younger people can do at home.

The posters will be numbered 1 – 12 and that will take you through the Christmas story in sequence if you want to follow that, but you are more than welcome to scan the code on any of the posters you come across. (We hope to have them in place in early December and will let you know where to find them through our website and Facebook page.)

We'll also keep this page updated with news as the project develops – we're still working on some of the details! Meanwhile, please keep safe, and get ready to enjoy our new take on the Christmas story.
