HillCity Church hosts a Nativity Drive-Through on Dec. 11 and 12 at its site on Gladwin Road.

After 24 years, HillCity Church (formerly Abbotsford Christian Assembly) will hold its final Nativity Drive-Through next week.

The event runs from 6 to 10 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 11 and Friday, Dec. 12 at the church, at 3970 Gladwin Rd.

There are 11 outdoor scenes portraying the Christmas story with live animals, lights, and actors dressed as Mary and Joseph, angels, wise men and shepherds.

The scenes are bathed in the light of Abbotsford’s largest decorated Christmas tree, along with Christmas music.

The public views the scenes from the comfort of their vehicles, and usually about 1,000 cars stop by.

Admission is free, and donations are gratefully accepted for the Abbotsford Food Bank and the Salvation Army.
