Be part of our real-life nativity!

November 20, 2017

Come and be part of the greatest nativity scene for 2,000 years!

Over 600,000 people have signed the Hope for the Middle East petition and we need you and your friends to make as much noise about this as possible. You can get involved in a fun and festive way by gathering at Parliament Square Garden, London, and dressing up as Mary and Joseph on 13 December!

The essentials!

What? A photo stunt of a huge gathering of people dressed as Mary and Joseph (Mary and Joseph attire will be provided). The photo will be shared on social media and in the press. Mince pies also included for participants!

Why? As the Hope for the Middle East petition is presented to the UN and the UK government, let’s get as many people as possible talking about it! The photo stunt will show the shocking reality that 2,000 years on from the first Christmas, Christians are still looking for room in the birthplace of Christianity.

Who? You and as many of your friends as possible!

Where? Parliament Square Garden, Westminster, London

When? Wednesday 13 December 2017 at 12.30pm

So are you up for having some festive fun and raising your voice for justice?

Please let us know if you can make it to this special event emailing us!.


We support people who are beaten, tortured,
imprisoned, falsely accused, and hated simply for following Jesus.
