A Community Advent Count-down


We have an advent tradition here in Trumpington which brings people together and is a great and simple way to get involved and meet other people near by...


Knitted figures of Mary, Joseph and the donkey make their way around the community as households offer them hospitality for the night.

Would you like to host them for a night this year?


Everyone can take part - no connection with the church is required.


Mary and Joseph will set off from our church service on the 1st of December and reach their destination - the church crib scene - during the Christingle service on christmas eve (4pm, 24th December in the parrish church).


To take part, please fill in and submit the form below. (Alternatively you can email donkey(at) with any questions.)

Please Note: In order to facilitate Posada, we need to share your contact details with the family who you will be picking up the figures from and the family you will drop the figures off too. You then arrange time/location with each other. By signing up to the Trumpington Posada, you agree to have your contact details shared in this way.
