Churches release modern retelling of Nativity to highlight asylum seeker plight

MARY and Joseph find seeking asylum in the UK– new video released

This Christmas time, a new Nativity video is imagining the welcome Mary and Joseph would receive if they arrived in the UK seeking asylum. As children across the country participate in their own retelling of the Christmas story, the video uses child actors to play the Holy couple negotiating the harsh realities facing those seeking refuge on our shores.

The video shows Mary and Joseph struggling to get by in temporary accommodation, while the three wise men are taken in to custody by the police before they are able to deliver their gifts. The film is released as the latest UK Government figures, for September, show Scotland had 3,245 asylum seekers who were receiving accommodation and/or financial support of less than £6 per day.
