Bethlehem

'Come to Bethlehem and see.....'
is a Christmas event for all the family. West Wagga Wagga Parish hosts a mini live Bethlehem with all its action in the lead up to Christmas. The Holy Trinity School Grounds are transformed into the Bethlehem as at the time of Jesus' birth.

It is staged nightly on December 22 -24 from 8.00- 9.30pm. The event is of interest and enjoyment to all families and individuals. Visitors before passing through the City Gates must complete the Roman census and then pay the golden tax to the taxman watched over by the Roman Guards.

Families can then browse through the various scenes depicted with interesting dioramas but know that the noise of a busy city with its colour, smells and atmosphere can't be captured on a web page!

Holy Trinity School Grounds are transformed into the Bethlehem as at the time of Jesus' birth. People can wander though and be steeped in the culture and feelings of Biblical times. There are realistic city scenes with characters in period costume and live animals to delight the children.

Adults are taxed by the Roman Guards a two dollar gold coin for Caesar. Children are free.

As you wander though the city, one is steeped in the culture and feelings of Biblical times. There are realistic city scenes with characters in period costume and live animals to delight the children.

Venture along to Bardia Street Ashmont this Christmas and see....
