Aylesbury's American vicar says, after over a year in the town, he's impressed with the Christmas community Christmas spirit here.
Doug Zimmerman oversees St Mary's in the town centre, after moving from Tampa in Florida last year.
He says now is the time to be united as one community:
"Aylesbury certainly has a more community feel about it.
"It's gathering around Market Square and all of the smaller areas where people congregate just to be together and recognise that we are part of one community and that we can come together, even through our diversity, and celebrate."
There are of course Christmas events happening at St Mary's over the next few days. You can see them here.
But the churches across the town join together to do things like Street Angels, Town Centre Chaplaincy and Winter Warmth for the homeless.
Doug told us people need to let go of all the 'stuff' that surrounds this time of year and think about others:
"This is a time of year when there is great need for people in the community who don't have shelter, don't have food, don't have community and they find themselves isolated.
"There are many opportunities within the church and the town to meet the needs of those who are cold and hungry."
