Due to the national lockdown the Abbey will be closed except for Private Prayer on Wednesday and Saturday (10 am-12 noon).

Roadmap for return to live services: We are aiming to align our return to church for Sunday and midweek worship at the Abbey and in the villages with Step 3 in the government’s roadmap, which will allow for the opening of most indoor secular venues with social distancing and other precautions. The earliest that this will take place is 17 May; on the assumption that nationally we move to Step 3 on that date, we are making provisional plans for a midweek Communion in the Abbey on 19th and 26th May, and for services for all our congregations at the Abbey and in the villages on 23 May, Pentecost Sunday, the church’s birthday. For more information please read this weeks news sheet which will be available on Friday 30 May (click here).

Abbey Café Update: We are open Monday to Saturday from 9.30am to 3.30pm. With the Abbey currently closed for most of the time, the entrance to the Café is through the ancient door from the Cloister Gardens, found at the back of the Abbey building. Relax at one of our outside tables. We’re hoping to be able to open our seating area within the Abbey from Monday May 17th. For more information about the Abbey Cafe click here.
