Emmanuel Bristol is a family of churches working together to make more disciples, who will plant more churches, to show more people that Jesus is Lord.

Come and discover the greatest story ever told!

For one weekend only (Friday 11th – Sunday 13th December), uncover the wonder and joy of the Christmas story. Marvel at the angels, journey with the wise men and see the baby Jesus born in a dirty stable.

There are five trails – each with its unique spin on the Christmas story. Start at the beginning, middle or end. Take in the whole trail or just parts of it! The windows will be lit from 4-8pm.

At each window, scan the QR code and it will click through to a webpage with the next part of the Christmas story and a Christmas Carol to play as you enjoy the scene!

Don’t forget to visit the Church Hall at Church of the Good Shepherd where the children of Emmanuel Bishopston and Magic Dragon Pre School have decorated the windows! And if coronavirus restrictions have been lifted, you might spot some real-life characters from the Christmas Story in the garden!

If you have appreciated the Emmanuel Nativity Trail, why not come along to one of our Christmas Carol Services? Designed for all the family, we will explore how the Christmas story is good news for all people.
