Maidstone's Live Nativity

 A novel, multi-location, open-air nativity culminated in a large participation of local people signing carols in Maidstone's Jubilee Square on Saturday. They were joined at the close by local MP Helen Grant who congratulated everyone involved.

Helen said 'Maidstone's Waypoint project has created a new way of sharing the Christmas message with the people of Maidstone. I thought it was wonderfully staged and it is so gratifying to witness the coming together of over 20 churches and organisations, working jointly to connect with the people of Maidstone. I was especially impressed with little baby Jesus, played by Dimitri Bangiu from Maidstone Family Church. He was perfectly behaved; never uttering a cry or a tear throughout!'

The re-telling of the Nativity story was presented in four 15-minute scenes at four different locations in Maidstone Town Centre. Local choirs led the singing with the story being told by a narrator and actors from the Waypoint Project.
