A new family comedy film called Nativity! about a school nativity play that gains the interest of Hollywood is released in British cinemas on 27th November. For those with long memories of British TV comedy, it may bring back the nativity sketch from ‘Three Of A Kind’.

The movie stars Martin Freeman of ‘The Office‘ fame, along with other big British names such as Ashley Jensen from Extras (so that’s two stars from programmes originated by Ricky Gervais), John Sessions, Ricky Tomlinson and Alan Carr.

Damaris Trust has been commissioned to provide resource materials for churches to use in discussion and outreach (and which will, effectively, promote the film in church circles). Below is a trailer. Enjoy!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

  1. hoping to see this in xmas eve in Lyme Regis with family… as a teaching assistant I rather fancy seeing a film that includes… a teaching assistant!
    would be interested to know what Damaris make of it.


    1. I’m trying to persuade my wife that we should go and see it, but she’s more interested in goign with girly friends to see ‘New Moon’. She also doesn’t think our children will understand ‘Nativity!’ yet. I’m hoping to use some of the free, legally downloadable clips from the Damaris resource page in a service on the Sunday after Easter.
