Pictures of Advent and Christmas from Around the Deanery

Virtual Posada from St John the Divine

Over the last few years, members of St John the Divine  have participated in the Posada in which the (knitted) Holy Family travel around from house to house during the lead-up to Christmas, symbolising the journey to Bethlehem.
Sadly, it can’t happen in the usual way this year, so they have devised a virtual Posada instead! They will be sending out pictures with Mary, Joseph and the donkey travelling around familiar local scenes, culminating in their arrival at St John’s on Christmas Eve.
