Pupils from Churchill Special Free School in Haverhill visited St Mary’s Church in the town with their Christingle oranges.

Each child had made a Christingle which they lit in a short service conducted by the Rev Canon Ian Finn.

Head teacher Georgina Ellis said: “Many of the children said they had not been in a church before so this was a good opportunity for them to engage in a short activity, supported by the staff from Churchill.

“It is important that our pupils have a chance to go out into the local community and experience a range of activities.”

Churchill School is on the site of Samuel Ward Academy in Chalkstone Way and caters for pupils with speech, language and communication difficulties or who have a diagnosis of autism.
