THE SHIRWELL MISSION COMMUNITY

A Mission Community in the Diocese of Exeter

Posada 2018

This is derived from a Mexican custom. Members of the congregation (and friends) take it in turn to host Mary and Joseph for a night, finding them somewhere to sleep, before passing them on to someone else the next day.


Many of the hosts take photographs, which are shown at the afternoon service on Christmas Eve, when Mary and Joseph arrive to take their place in the nativity.


The photographs below follow Mary and Joseph as they travel around Bratton Fleming (and beyond) throughout Advent 2018.
