Christians, Gateway Church Xmas Event-9 Dec

By Shirley Ludford On Thursday 7th December 2017

Christians from Gateway Church, Swindon are busy preparing a Santa experience with a difference.   Members of the group decided that they wanted to balance the traditional visit to and present from Santa, with activities and gifts that tell the Christmas story as told in the Bible.  The event will take place in The Gate Charity shop in Havelock Square on Saturday 9th of December from 10am until 4pm.  

The Gate will be given over to the event for the whole day and groups of children and their parents wil be guided around 4 different activities based around the Christmas story before arriving at the stable where they will get the chance to have their photo taken as part of the nativity scene.   Finally they will meet Father Christmas where they will receive a gift.  

In part of the shop festive refreshments will be served and there will be space for people to talk about the real meaning of Christmas.   Whilst the Gate will be open to everyone the "Coming for Santa, Leaving with Jesus" part will be ticketed with specific time slots so that a controlled flow of children and parents can be spread throughout the day.   Tickets can be bought from the Gate for £2.00.
