The choir of students from the clinical years brought the little church to life with “amazing” renditions of some well-known carols.

Lecturers and students read the Bible lessons while Dan Heyward, associate vicar from Pip n Jay Church in Bristol, looked at how Jesus’ birth in a stable, among all the animals, with a feeding trough for a bed, is still as relevant today as it was more than 2,000 years ago.

Rosie Dalton, a student and organiser, said students were excited and encouraged to share the evening with so many students and staff, and they look forward to beginning a “Christianity explored” course in the spring term.
