Christmas In Bethlehem

Christmas in Bethlehem 2016 is finished and was another great year. Thanks to all that made the event possible. Watch this space for the date in 2017!


Christmas in Bethlehem is a walk-through interactive Christmas event at Petone Baptist Church, run over two evenings and one morning.  The church is set up as a mock Bethlehem village.

Loads of people come from the local community each year – we had around 1100 last year. It’s very popular with young families and has plenty of interest and activity for all ages.

Christmas in Bethlehem is designed to give people outside of churches the opportunity to experience the real story of Christmas – as opposed to the commercial version of it! Over the years we have added to what we provide, but have retained the hands-on aspect of the event.

We grateful to Petone Pak n Save, Petone Mitre 10 and the Hutt City Council Community Engagement fund for providing sponsorship.

We hope you and your family can come along this year!
