Bath Street Bench Repair

Abingdon Christmas Extravaganza
Steve sent me this picture of a bench in Bath street that has been unusable until a local carpenter took the matter into their own hands and repaired it. They even added a new leg for safety.

If you would like to use the seat then it can be found near the Black Swan and behind Poundland.

Advent Candles and Christmas Tree at Trinity

One of the congregation was invited to light the first candle on the advent crown this morning,

then everybody was invited to bring a candle up to the altar.

In a change from previous years the twelve foot Christmas Tree is artificial, and came in five sections that were slotted together and then the branches bushed out. The tree is covered with many small lights and has a bright star on top.

We are now waiting for the true light to appear.
