In typical Army fashion, they went where people in need could be found and rendered a sweet service yesterday: a band played Christmas carols with vocalists from the Royal College of Music wearing Victorian costume to entertain weary, stressed travelers at Heathrow Airport!
Serving at the airport is such an important ministry that Major Fred Thompson is the Army’s chaplain at Heathrow.
â€œAt Christmas and at all times of year there are a lot of emotions and activities that go on at an airport and as a Salvation Army chaplain I aim to get alongside staff and passengers,” says Major Fred.
Here’s a video of the carol service outside terminal 3 at Heathrow!
We hope you enjoy this sweet Christmas story from The Salvation Army in London, the headquarters of our work in 126 countries around the world.
God bless you on this Christmas day and throughout 2014!
Luke 2: 1 – 21
