This morning the fourth candle on the Advent crown was lit at Trinity, Abingdon.
There was a very moving baptism, followed by a nativity tableau.
Revd Ian Griffiths, the new minister of both All Saints Church, Abingdon, and Trinity Church, Abingdon, led the service.
In the evening there was a carol service with traditional carols and readings.
Many people go to church at Christmas to re-experience the wonder of Christmas and sing the traditional carols, who don’t go at other times.
