Get in the Picture!

‘Get in the Picture’ is an exciting new project that allows you to take part in the Christmas story. Dress up as a shepherd, a King or as Mary and imagine yourself as a character in one of the greatest stories ever told.

The Christmas story is one of the greatest stories ever told. It is a story of the scandal of a teenage birth, political intrigue at the palace, the shame and worry of being homeless, a desperate flight to freedom.

There are kings and shepherds, stars and animal dung, angels and donkeys. It is the story of hope, peace and new beginnings – even when things seemed to be at their darkest.

‘Get in the Picture’ is a project that started in 2008. It enables all kinds of people to be involved in the Christmas story by encouraging them to participate and experience being part of the nativity in a fun way.

Photos are taken and uploaded to the website for participants to print out or share with friends – all for free!


‘Get in the Picture’ is a collaboration between some great organisations, all of which have come together to give you a great Christmas experience.

What do Others Say?

“It went really well, with brilliant conversations and laughter. People loved the photos – 135 different people were photographed, about 100 of these were not ‘Sunday church’ people”

Birstall Methodist Church, Leicester

“Brilliant! We were thrilled with the number of participants, especially that so many were from the village community and therefore nothing to do with churches.”
