As for last year the Service was held in the magnificent Church of St Bartholomew the Great, West Smithfield, London, attended by leaders and residents of the Abbeyfield Society. Readings were by the national Abbeyfield Chairman, President, Chief Executive and Patrons. One of our Oxford residents (pictured) read the poem, “Christmas Market” by Mike Harding. There was superb singing by the Church Choir, good representation from other Abbeyfield Homes, and refreshments.
Oxford Abbeyfield will have its own carols for residents, staff, and friends on Monday.
