The Lost Sheep - a Festive Trail

Families are invited to come and help our Bethlehem Shepherd find his lost sheep in time for Christmas! Following a trail around the churchyard and around the parish you might find more than just sheep on the way! Come and enjoy the wintery wonder of our world, by wrapping up warm and helping to find our lost sheep!


PS if you solve the mystery question you will receive a lovely bag of Christmas goodies!

Families are invited to join in the Bethlehem Shepherd festive by picking up a pack after booking a time slot 2pm and 4pm on December 12th. The trail will take you on a route around the churchyard, then down to Blatchington Pond, and up the Chichester Rd Twitten and back to the church where the prize can be collected!

The idea, is to offer the chance for families to take their daily exercise with fun. On the trail they are invited to find clues that will be hidden on the route, up in trees for instance. It’s going to be rather like a festive treasure hunt and should take about 30 minutes at most.

NB: Children must be accompanied by adults and must remain in their own family group. Social distancing must be adhered to and great care taken when crossing the roads. The trail will end back at the church where the prize bag will be given.
