The Nativity Project 2021: re-GENERATION 29 November – Christmas Day
The Nativity Project is back for 2021!
A collaborative project by The Friends of Holy Trinity Cathedral and ADJust (Diocese of Auckland Young Anglicans for Social Justice), the Nativity Project at Holy Trinity Cathedral seeks to draw attention to an important environmental or social issue each year.
This year, they hope to build on the successes of the inaugural project in 2020, and are excited to announce that the theme of the Nativity Project installation for 2021 will be re-GENERATION: Supporting our native environment.
Holy Trinity is partnering with Trees that Count to raise awareness about the importance of preserving our unique native environment in Aotearoa New Zealand and to help regenerate that environment by raising funds to plant native trees. They hope to encourage people to give the gift of native trees for Christmas.
The nativity art installation on the Cathedral forecourt this year will depict the holy family as natural elements with the entire scene, literally ‘growing’ throughout Advent, to be in full bloom at the arrival of Jesus.
To engage with The Nativity Project: re-GENERATION, they are asking people to:
– Visit The Nativity Project: re-GENERATION installation on the Holy Trinity Cathedral forecourt, 12 St Stephens Avenue from 29 November in a safe and socially distanced manner.
– Donate a native tree/s to our Nativity Project Tree Registry at: https://grow.treesthatcount.co.nz/registry/re-generationthenativityproject2021
– Share The Nativity Project: re-GENERATION information with their communities.
