Churchgoers spread a Christmas message with LEGO video

Trinity Methodist Church and Community Hub shared a Christmas message through a LEGO video, showcasing their efforts to build the nativity story.

During December, young people at the Trinity Methodist Church and Community Hub in Clitheroe, near Leeds, UK, used thousands of LEGO to build a nativity scene and tell the story of Christmas. In a special video to share their build, the church-goers used some stop motion animation and voice over.

The video, titled the Bricktivity, features 75 nativity models that were loaned for the Christmas period to form ‘Cribfest’ which the LEGO project formed the centrepiece of.

The moment you’ve been waiting for! Following the premiere during the Carol Service, we are delighted to share with you “CribFest 2019: The Bricktivity”. Made by the young people of Trinity across four weeks of workshops … we hope you enjoy it.Happy Christmas!

“During the four Saturdays of Advent, we offered a Lego construction zone, free craft activities and coffee and cake. This is the first time we have done anything like this,” Organiser Harriet Robert told the Lancashire Telegraph. “We are warming up for Autumn 2020 when the building work on our new hub will be complete and we will have a community cafe opening up onto the Castle park and a range of family friendly activities throughout the week.”
