Experience an interactive living Nativity at Bethlehem LIVE!
All ages will enjoy the sights, smells & sounds of Bethlehem’s first Christmas, as you go back in time 2,000 years!
After 10 years of tours and performances at Gateway Church, Bethlehem LIVE! is taking a rest. If you have experienced Bethlehem LIVE!, you know how wonderful it was and will want to see it again with a friend who has never taken a tour. And if you haven’t walked through Bethlehem before, check back in future years to get an update on when Bethlehem LIVE! will begin again.
What is Bethlehem LIVE? It is a living nativity. Various portions of the ancient town of Bethlehem are built inside a gymnasium, and you can enjoy various re-enactments throughout the town regarding the events surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ.
Your journey begins as you enter the Time Tunnel and travel back in time 2,000-plus years. Your group will be guided by a shepherd and you will experience all the sights, sounds and smells of Bethlehem’s first Christmas. Many return to Bethlehem LIVE because there is so much to take in that they can hardly do so in just one tour!
As you leave Bethlehem, you will be welcomed back to the present day by one of Gateway Church’s pastors who will explain the relevance of Jesus’ birth today. Your “journey” ends with refreshments offered by volunteers eager to help weary pilgrims.
All of this takes place indoors at 851 Panet Road and it is entirely FREE. There is no cost. We want this to be Gateway Church’s Christmas gift to the people of Winnipeg and southern Manitoba. In past years, people have come from all across the city and from around the province to enjoy a tour of Bethlehem LIVE!
You can check back at our website in future years to discover the dates on which we hope you can one day bring your family, friends and neighbours to see Bethlehem LIVE! For more information or if you have any questions please contact us.
