The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has asked people to remember those less fortunate than themselves this Christmas.
In an interview with ITV News he says the message he wants to give is to 'care for the poor' and that he would like people to reach out to those who may be alone over the holidays.
The Archbishop of Canterbury said: "It was with sadness that I heard the news of the death of Baroness Thatcher and my prayers are with her son and daughter, her grandchildren, family and friends.
"It is right that today we give thanks for a life devoted to public service, acknowledging also the faith that inspired and sustained her.”
The Archbishop of Canterbury has officially been enthroned as the service in Canterbury comes to an end.
The archbishop delivered a final blessing to the congregation as the procession was led out of the cathedral.
The Most Rev Justin Welby has arrived at Canterbury Cathedral for his enthronement.
