HillCity Church hosts final Nativity Drive-Through

The Abbotsford church holds annual tradition for the last time

HillCity Church (formerly Abbotsford Christian Assembly) holds its Nativity Drive-Through on Friday, Dec. 12 for the last time in 24 years.

The event, which was held last night as well, takes place from 6 to 10 p.m. at the church, 3970 Gladwin R

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.
