A service was held at All Saints with St Peter in Luton to celebrate the arrival of the annual Bethlehem Peace Light.

It was collected in Dover on Sunday by Deep Sea Scout Mike Jarman of Luton.

The light visits several churches in Bedfordshire before being dedicated at a candle-lit service at St Andrew’s in Bedford on Christmas Eve.

The movement, started by Austrian Radio 26 years ago, has grown into a wordwide symbol for hope and inspiration.
