Year 6 children from St Michael’s took part in the 50th Year of Christingle at Salisbury Cathedral on Thursday 11 December 2018.

The Christingle service originated in the Moravian Church in Germany, and The Children's Society adapted and introduced it to the Church of England as a way to help disadvantaged children and young people.

The first service took place on 7th December 1968. Since then the campaign has raised millions of pounds to support vulnerable children and young people across the country.

A traditional service was led by the Dean of Salisbury, The Very Reverend Nicholas Papadopulos.

It featured the Cathedral School Junior choir singing a new song 'Light a Candle' which was commissioned by The Children's Society to celebrate the 50th anniversary.
