Posada was a Mexican tradition where young dressed as Mary and Joseph and travelled from house to house around their village asking for a room for the night, and telling people about the imminent arrival of Jesus in the coming weeks.
Modern day Posada uses figures of Mary and Joseph to travel from place to place. Giving each ‘host’ the chance to create their own celebration in their house during Advent, preparing for Christmas by making room for Jesus in their lives.
This year our Posada will be travelling around Bingley and Gilstead. Around Families, Couples, Single people, Shops, Care Homes. If you would like to host the Posada one evening please contact Mike as below. We will welcome the Posada back into Holy Trinity on Christmas Morning at 9:15am in a short 15 minute service with carols and cake. Please do come along and bring a present to show us as well!
