Lego Nativity story

Mary and Joseph at the manger with the baby Jesus made from Lego for the Bessels Green Baptist Church Christmas storyUpdate: View a video of the Lego here…

Bessels Green Baptist Church is undertaking a very special project this Christmas.

We are making a nativity scene in the church grounds using Lego (with their permission!) and we need your help to make our nativity story come to life!


Using your imagination, we are hoping that each child might bring one Lego figure and add it to one of the seven episodes of the Christmas story. They can be added at any time during Advent.

We have built our Mary, Joseph and main angels, but we are short of shepherds, wise men or kings, camels, donkeys/horses, soldiers, sheep, general people or something of your own creation, be it a spaceman or a princess!

You are only limited by your own creativity.

When the project is over in January any unclaimed Lego figures will be donated to Monique’s After School Club that runs at Bessels Green Baptist Church.

Interview with ex-Premiership footballer Linvoy Primus

Some teams still looking for more players – contact Matt Young here:

Contact Football


Amongst all the star names at Portsmouth Football Club in recent years, no player has been more popular than Linvoy Primus.

Linvoy started his career in 1990 at Charlton Athletic, and over an 18 year period was a senior player at Charlton, Barnet, Reading and finally at Portsmouth, where his career came to an end through injury in December 2009. The Milton Stand at Fratton Park, Portsmouth was renamed “The Linvoy Primus Community Stand” in honour of his outstanding services to the club.

Linvoy released his autobiography in 2007 entitled “Transformed” and as well as being joint founder is actively involved with the Christian Charity “Faith and Football”.

Linvoy shares his inspirational story of his life in football and how through his amazing conversion to Christianity, he triumphantly overcame disillusionment, lack of self-belief and numerous rejections which led to a life and career that has been totally transformed.

As Linvoy tells of his Christian journey he hopes that his story and life experiences, will encourage, challenge and inspire others to have a relationship, like he has found, with Jesus Christ.
