Oxford: Carols on a train

04 January 2013

IT MIGHT be startling to see a bishop suddenly appear in full canonicals in your railway carriage, but all would be explained by an accompanying choir's singing Christmas carols. The Bishop of Dorchester, the Rt Revd Colin Fletcher, led a small choir from St Andrew's C of E Primary School, and members of the Chinnor Christian Aid group, for an evening of carols on a steam train on the Chinnor and Princes Risborough heritage railway, in Oxford diocese. They were raising money for Christian Aid.

The Bishop met all the volunteers who run the railway, and told them how much he had enjoyed his ride behind the splendid steam locomotive.
