The script is narrated all in rhyme, with participation from adults from the congregation and lasts between 15 and 20 minutes dependant upon how smoothly it is acted. No songs are provided, but hymns/carols etc can be included. The script is narrated with sarcasm, mockery and attitude as adults from the congregation join in for a fun, family service.

The D-I-Y Nativity Play… 

  • tells the traditional, bible based nativity story in a hilarious, light-hearted way,
  • using narration full of humour, sarcasm and mockery of the adult volunteers (all scripted in rhyme for the narrators to read…with attitude!)
  • is a great way to bring young and old together in a nativity service with a difference.
  • has a great message: WE ALL need to share the message of Jesus

The fact that the whole script is narrated makes it simple to recast in the event of illness or absence, so no last minute panics! (Can you tell I’ve done this before?!)

  • 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.

A Unique Do-It-Yourself Nativity Play!

“The church really entered into the fun of it and the children thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity for some good humoured mockery of the adult volunteers!”

Angela (after using it in my own church)

The DIY Nativity Play is purpose written for a small cast of reading age and needs…..

  • Very little rehearsal and
  • No memorising

I wrote this particular script when our Sunday school had very few young children, but the older children we had were fairly self-conscious about doing a ‘cute’ traditional nativity play, and we didn’t even have enough children to fulfil the usual cast. We needed something ……

  • 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 15 to 20 minutes and is written entirely in rhyme, including all the instructions to and the mockery of the volunteer cast!  It avoids ‘performing’ of songs by being blended with congregational carol singing, making for a lovely, Christmas family atmosphere.

 “Everyone said they enjoyed the service and that it had a lovely feel to it.  

It turned out to be a REAL DIY event!”
