Click the titles below to find out more about this Nativity:


  • A “Nativity Roll Call” performance poem and message to the audience : a fabulous and unique finale for any traditional nativity play (not just this one). Again, all in rhyme, this gives everyone involved the opportunity to take a bow as they say their own individual line. This has been so well received that I now write one for every script.
  • The “Full Christmas Story” : A purpose written Christmas rhyming poem which can, if you choose, be read out to round up the message at the end of your nativity play.

“FANTASTIC! Within seconds I was the proud owner 

of a cracker of a nativity play”

Nuala Levack of Our Lady of Fatima School, Birmingham

As with all of my nativity plays, the Children’s Nativity Story copy is…

  • purpose written
  • adaptable
  • easy to learn

As I began writing nativity scripts for my own use as a children’s leader, I deliberately make them…

  • easy to recast in the event of absence or illness, and
  • simple to use regardless of the number of children.
  • INSTANTLY DOWNLOADABLE in an easy to use format.  

The nativity script lasts around 25 minutes and is written entirely in rhyme, including the narration and all of the speaking parts, a proven way to make the script easier to remember.

Preschools, primary schools and churches across the world have written to say how simple and effective they have found it, very often adding that it has been their “most successful nativity to date.”
