Christmas is coming!
Join in with Posada and join us in preparing for Christmas
What is Posada?
Posada means 'inn' in Spanish and so we make sure that there is room for Jesus in our Christmas preparations as we let the figures of Mary and Joseph stay at our homes through Advent. You can sign up to have them visit you and then when friends and family see them, we talk about how we celebrate at Christmas that God stepped into our world as a man.
Posada is an old Mexican tradition where young people dressed as Mary and Joseph travelled from house to house asking for a room for the night and telling people about the imminent arrival of Jesus in the weeks leading up to Christmas. On Christmas Eve they would visit the local church to re-enact the nativity and place figures of Mary and Joseph by a crib.
Modern day Posada uses nativity figures of Mary and Joseph who travel from place to place. This gives each ‘host’ the chance to create their own celebration in their home or place in the community, worshipping and reaching out to their communities with the real message of Christmas, making room for Jesus in their lives.
Then on Christmas Day ...
Mary and Joseph will arrive at Wymondley Baptist Church on 25th December in time for our service, when you will be able to see something of their travels and share what is the most important part of Christmas.
