What’s on over November?

Reflective and (self) guided walk

From Monday 23 November the Abbey will host a reflective and (self)guided walk in the churchyard. Everyone in the town is invited to take this opportunity to connect afresh, as individuals, families or households, with this community space and find precious moments of peace in this time of lockdown and uncertainty. Pop into the Abbey Porch for guidance on how to get started and make the most of the walk.

Private Prayer

The Abbey will be open on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 10am to 12noon for private prayer starting from Saturday 7 November. Please wear a mask, use the sanitising stations, follow the one way system and maintain social distancing. Thanks so much for helping us keep people safe by following these guidelines.
