Christmas Eve 2010: The Nativity Play

This year's play was called "The Gift" and tells the story of a new (and not very competent) angel who can't sing, can't play, can't fly and keeps losing his halo! Eventually after a chat and cup of tea with Gabriel they send for a box of his special things from earth, all of the treasures he had as a little boy. He starts to feel much better and begins to work really hard at being angelic. When it comes time to celebrate the birth of Jesus, he knows just the present to give - his very special treasure box - but next to all the marvellous gifts of the other angels, will it look shabby and out of place?
