We are now well and truly into advent, with a full compliment of services, plays, concerts and other seasonal activities.
This week we have our Julespill (Christmas play for nursery age children). Every year a dedicated team of staff and volunteers give a big chunk of time to ensure that the vast majority of children in our kommune hear the Christmas story. Yesterday we rigged (the second time in a week that we have moved almost all the chairs in church) and rehearsed. Today we had a dress rehearsal followed by 4 performances and a Christmas activity workshop for 3 year olds and their families. I think there are probably 6 or 8 more performances this week (haven’t checked the schedule yet!), plus a special touring version which visits nurseries which are unable to travel.
Here are some pictures from the performance this evening:
