Each year the Archbishop invites pupils from a different local church school to create decorations for the Lambeth Palace Christmas trees and during his last Advent before retirement Dr Williams asked St Jude's Primary School near Elephant & Castle to help out.

The pupils spent time with Archbishop Rowan and Mrs Williams and sang a song for their hosts. The Archbishop fielded questions from the children on a wide range of topics.

• This week it was announced that Dr Williams, who leaves Lambeth Palace at the end of the year, is to be the next chairman of the board of Lower Marsh-based international development charity Christian Aid.
