The Bethlehem Village Experience in Vale Judeu

The Bethlehem Village Experience in Vale Judeu

Experience Christmas without the tinsel and the trees but as it was the very first time. The Bethlehem Village Experience will be taking place at The International Church in Vale Judeu from December 5 to December 7.
Imagine a little village that existed long before coloured lights, reindeer or Santa Claus. Roman soldiers walk the streets, Wise Men appear with their camels, shopkeepers are going about their everyday lives, yet this village is on the brink of something immense, the birth of one who would forever change the course of human history.
Experience this village as it really was and be transported to Bethlehem to see for yourself the magic and wonder of the first Christmas.
The Bethlehem Village Experience will include Christmas lights, the Salvation Army Band and a chance to meet, see and hear from everyone including the inn keeper, wise men and even King Herod in his palace.
There will also be a market place selling Christmas gifts and crafts with all proceeds going to support the local Salvation Army and Jill Kinsey, a missionary to orphans in Lesotho.
The event is free to attend and will be held in English on December 5 between 7pm and 9pm, in Portuguese on December 6 between 8pm and 10pm, and again in English on December 7 from 4pm until 6.30pm, to be followed by the joint carol service at 7pm.
