A packed Canterbury Cathedral heard the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Revd Justin Welby preach his Christmas Day sermon.
The Archbishop told the Canterbury congregation about one of his favourite times of year. “Each year at Christmas we have a guest carol service at Lambeth Palace. We hear from those who have recently begun to find the life Jesus offers. They come from all sorts of places, from people who have been trafficked into slavery to people who have known only power and privilege. Their stories of responding to the invitation of the manger born baby are the best part of my year.”
