Saul’s lost in Leek. Can you find him?


This year’s Churches Together Nativity Sheep Trail is underway.

Can you find all the little lost sheep? Then the shepherds can go and see baby Jesus. It seems they’ve wandered into Leek, as some people have spotted them in the shops!

Just complete the Nativity Sheep Trail with all the names of the sheep against the shop you found them in. Then hand into any of the churches in Leek, Co-op Funeral Care, Leek Post & Times or The Foxlowe (a red posting box is provided in each of these locations) and you’ll be entered into a prize draw as a BIG thank you for helping the shepherds.

Poor Saul. He doesn’t like heights!

The winner will be drawn at the Leek & District Churches Together Community Service held at Trinity Church, Russell Street, on Sunday, 8th January 2017 at 4pm. Why not come along to see who wins? – Everyone is welcome!

Nativity Sheep Trail sheets have been distributed to all our First/Primary school children at: All Saints’ First School, Beresford Memorial First School, Blackshaw Moor First School, Leek First School, St Mary’s Academy, Westwood First School and Woodcroft First School.

If you haven’t got a copy, you can download from here: Churches Together in Leek & District Nativity Sheep Trail 2016.

Our thanks go to the participating establishments: Aphrodite Designs, Bamboo, Becalmed, Bo-Belles, Dougal’s Den, Footprints, The Foxlowe, Leek Post & Times, Moorlands Cookshop, Mr Simms, The Cabbage Rose, Unique and Yankee Candle.

Help pass on the real message of Christmas: download the Nativity Sheep Trail, read the Nativity story on the first page to your child(ren)/grandchild(ren)/niece/nephew, then go on a discovery adventure around town to find the sheep. And don’t forget to say hello! to Little Lost Saul in the Town Crib!

A fun-filled and blessed Christmas to all!
