This year marks the 85th anniversary of the annual Christmas Pageant, “A Child is Born”! The pageant has a rich history, it has brought the Kingsway-Lambton community together, it has stood the test of time, and it has even withstood COVID-19 (2 years via video). Starting in 1937, with Gwladys Martin as the first "Mary", the pageant has been a treasured tradition for generations of families.
A mini documentary of the Pageant has been made by Mia Kramer with estimonials from past participants, directors, and coordinators as well as archival materials. It is a ten-minute video showcasing the history of the Pageant and honours the 85 uninterrupted years of celebrating the birth of the Christ Child. It will be shown all four evenings before the live performance begins. Yes, we'll be back on stage this year! Stay tuned for more teaser information about the mini documentary and we look forward to its premiere!
For two years in a row, our beloved Christmas Pageant was a virtual celebration. Watch here the story of Jesus's birth, "A Child Is Born" in video format (1st link is Dec. 2021, 2nd is Dec. 2020):
Kingsway-Lambton's annual Christmas Pageant is an exciting tradition that shares the story of Christ's birth with members of the church and community.
Dozens of children from the church and community, as well as many parents and volunteers, take part in multiple performances held in late November and early December.
The Pageant allows the warmth of our church to be felt as God's love is shared.
There are many ways to get involved and help with the Christmas Pageant each year. Auditions for all roles are held in September. There are also opportunities for high school students to earn volunteer hours. Adult and parent volunteers are essential in making the Pageant a success.
