Justin Welby hits the town for Halloween themed club night

The Archbishop of Canterbury has shocked revellers after turning up to a club as it celebrated Halloween.

Most Rev Justin Welby visited the Tap n Tin Nightclub in Chatham, Kent, to join a new chaplaincy group and mix with guests to see how developing pastoral outreach works.

Commenting on the evening, Archbishop Justin tweeted: "I'm about 100 years too old for nightclubs but it was so encouraging to visit @tapntinchatham and see the chaplaincy team in action - they provide vital care and support for those who find themselves vulnerable on a night out."



Archbishop Justin is on a two-day visit to the Diocese of Rochester.
