Two Kinds of Crib Service


A Crib Service for the Sunday before Christmas (Advent 4)

Many thanks to the Reverendd Dr David Pym for the structure of this service, which is essentially a simplified and family-friendly carol service. If you think that even the six carols which are sung during this service will be too much for the children then you could always shorten them by omitting some verses.

Summary

  1. The Nativity story is told with the help of crib figures which are blessed and then taken, in turn, from the altar to a crib scene.
  2. Carols and readings are interspersed between the journeys of the figures.
