Enjoying the Christmas story – panto style – in All Saints’, Antrim!

Connor Christmas Panto Trail was on the road at the weekend, retelling the magical story of Christmas in St Patrick’s, Whitehead, on Saturday, and in Drummaul Parish Church, Randalstown on Sunday morning, and All Saints’, Antrim, on Sunday afternoon.

It was a busy weekend for Connor Children’s Ministry Development Officer Victoria Jackson, Karen Webb of Church Army, members of Connor Children’s Council and the artistes from Play it By Ear drama company.

The Christmas Panto Trail begins with a performance of the Nativity Story from Play it By Ear, and children, parents and grandparents, in small groups in accordance with Covid-19 guidelines, follow the performance through different stations before sitting down for arts crafts and refreshments (including hot chocolate!)

Families then enjoy a Christingle Service, led by puppets, and children have the opportunity to make their own Christingle to take home.

The remaining Advent Panto Trails will take place as follows. Places must be booked in advance via the host parish:

  • Derryvolgie Parish – Friday December 17, 6:30-8:30pm
  • Lisburn Cathedral – Saturday December 18, 11am-2pm

Below are a selection of pictures from Sunday afternoon’s fun in All Saints’, Antrim.
