Junior Church presents
"Now - and then"

Saturday 19 December 2020

2020 has been full of changes. The Junior Church Christmas service is another casualty of the pandemic. However, the children, young people and junior church leaders decided to go digital, and, in this video, we bring you reflections on 2020 through the Christmas story with 'Now - and then', written by Emily Hoe-Crook.


Connections are made between our experiences during the pandemic and events in the Christmas story. The five scenes each include a comparison between a person in 2020 and a person in the Christmas story, and prompt us to reflect on the changes to life we have experienced this year with a fresh look at the Christmas story.

If you would like to read the script it is here - you may find this helpful as some of the voices are rather quiet.

With thanks to all the readers and musicians for getting their parts filmed, to Stephen Haylett for the accompaniment to 'Come and Join the Celebration' and, most of all, to Ruth MacLaren for putting all the videos together.
