Cathedral Crib

See the Crib through children’s eyes

Our crib figures this year were created by children from around the Diocese who participated in the Journey to the Manger. At this event, we welcomed over 230 six and seven year olds from Church Schools to the Cathedral for a day exploring the Christmas story.

Each of the visiting classes constructed and decorated their own child-size figures and you can now enjoy them, on display at the High Altar, until 2 February 2018.

Participating schools (and their figures):

All Saints’ Blackheath (Joseph)

St Mary’s Lewisham (Mary)

St Faith’s, Wandsworth (Angel)

St John’s and St Clement’s, Southwark (Shepherds)

St Peter and St Paul’s, Chaldon and The Queen’s School, Kew (The Wise Men)

All are invited to join us for our Crib service at 4.00pm on Christmas Eve.
