The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby visited Luton on Thursday morning, as part of a wider tour across the Diocese of St Albans.
His visit began at St Mary’s Church, where he was treated to the Wenlock Junior School choir.
From there the Most Rev Justin Welby toured The Mall, where he stopped to chat with a number of shoppers and traders.
After walking the length of the shopping centre the Archbishop was taken to the town hall for a private reception.
