Thinking of children reminds us of last year's video, 'A Very British Nativity', produced by four churches including the Methodist Church. It highlights the challenges facing asylum seekers in the UK.
Martha, aged 8, who attends a Methodist church and played Mary in the film said, "Mary must have felt tired because she did so much walking with her suitcase and her baby.
