Give the gift that gives twice this Christmas

“Gift-giving is a popular Christmas tradition around the world, dating back to the three wise men who followed a star to the site of Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem…As a keen supporter of Fair Trade products, I especially enjoy giving Fair Trade gifts to loved ones at Christmas because these gifts give twice,” says John Martin from The Parish of Robina

“This is a delightful worship tale of the creation of the world from various characters, including the Professor, God and of course…the Sheep. Interspersed with carols, music, silence, artwork, and a dance for sheep, the message of the Gospel is clear and loud.
