Stunning Christmas labyrinth at Hampshire church

As part of its Christmas celebrations Eastleigh Baptist Church transformed its building to take people through the Christmas story

The church created a stunning, interactive Christmas labyrinth to explore the characters and events of the Nativity.



The Nativity Experience featured different scenery to transport visitors to the heart of the story, alongside costumed storytellers who brought it to life. There were also games and activities.  

The labyrinth was open to the public on Saturday, 21 November to coincide with the town’s Christmas lights switch on. During the ensuing week it was open by appointment to schools.

It proved popular, with 765 people coming on Saturday, and a similar number of school children throughout the week.

‘The aim of the experience was to engage children in the wonder of Christmas, and to learn about its importance to Christians,’ said minister Joth Hunt.

‘We also tied it into the Religious Education curriculum in schools, with the children coming in for a lesson and the characters taking them through the story.

‘We’ve done a number of things in previous years, but this was on a far bigger scale. I’m not surprised we were around 1,500 people.’
