Christmas isn’t cancelled! Saltmine Theatre Company’s plans for Christmas 2020


    Saltmine Theatre Company (a professional Christian theatre company and charity) is excited to announce a NEW creative missional package for churches this Christmas.

    This year whilst everything we love and expect might look different, the Christian message of Christmas remains unchanged. Now, more than ever, the message of inclusivity at the heart of the Nativity story is an urgent one.

    Saltmine Theatre Company feels called to reimagine its show Hark! A Nativity Story (an innovative take on the Christmas story featuring an angel looking for a lost message, a shepherd looking for a sheep and King Herod looking for an evil laugh) for this new season. Hark will be filmed live in a theatre with a big cast, live band and original festive music. It is expected to last about an hour and a half plus an interval and will include new songs and dance routines and provide comic and heart-warming entertainment for all ages.

    Saltmine believes this is an opportunity to provide churches with an exciting creative element that will not be cancelled and which brings joy whilst sharing the familiar Saltmine Christmas heart with added ‘wow’ factor.


    Private access to online streaming of a full filmed performance of Hark! A Nativity Story will be given to each church who donates to Saltmine. Additional children’s and audience resources will be available for download online.

    How each church delivers this production to their congregation is up to them. Churches could host socially distanced screenings in their building, provide an exclusive link for their church members to watch at home or do a mixture of the two.

    We are asking each church to give a minimum donation of £650 (or up to £850) for this package.


    If your church would like to share Hark! and its message with neighbours, colleagues and friends, why not consider donating £250  for a set of fifty gift cards* featuring the login details for access to this recording?   As you give out each card you invite someone to engage with the Nativity story – surely that is the ultimate Christmas present!

    *Saltmine asks for a donation of £5 per gift card – minimum of 50 cards
