It's the Nativity story with a difference!

And it's not just the catchy uplifting songs by Stevie Wonder and Jackie Wilson.

It's the untold story of the outsiders at the heart of the Nativity:  the low wage workers and rough sleepers watching the sheep, the Bethlehem night watchmen, the people God chose to reveal Jesus’s birth.   The kind of people God finds it easier to talk with!

The Night Watchmen's Nativity sees the birth of Christ through the eyes of the marginalised, using a mix of known and original contemporary gospel songs, secular as well as sacred, interspersed with spoken word and “sung scripture”.

Join Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir at St Martin in the Fields on Sunday 8th December 2019 at 6.30 pm for the premiere of The Night Watchmen’s Nativity.  The event is free and everyone is welcome to attend!
