Malmesbury Abbey

Online Worship

Sunday services are available on the Services page while Morning and Evening Prayer are streamed Monday to Friday on the Malmesbury Abbey Online page on Facebook and can also be viewed on the Morning & Evening Prayer page.


The Abbey is open for private prayer on Tuesdays (11 am – 1 pm) and Saturdays (9 am – 11 am) during July in the south aisle. There will be stewards on hand to help you and thank you in advance for continuing to practice social distancing in the Abbey.

If you would like to send us a personal prayer request, please email or use the form on the Pastoral & Prayer Support page and we will pray for you and your loved ones at our daily morning or evening prayer services.

Abbey Cafe

The Abbey Cafe is open Monday to Saturday 9.30 am to 3.30 pm for a takeaway service from the Cloister Gardens entrance. For more information about the Abbey Cafe click here.

Pastoral Care

If you have an urgent pastoral need, please phone the minister on duty on 07425 527312.

If you are isolated, have practical needs that can’t be met by family, friends and neighbours, or would like a phone call from one of our pastoral team, please call the Parish Office on 01666 826666 or email

Public Worship

We will aim to resume face-to-face services as soon as we are capable of doing so, but these are likely to be constrained whilst the Ministry Team is running at reduced capacity, and be re-introduced gradually. We will continue to provide online virtual Sunday worship and daily Morning and Evening Prayer in the meantime as we know that a number of you will continue to self-isolate or shield for a longer period. We thank you for your continued support, and for your patience whilst we look at how we can begin the move back to public worship safely.


We are an Anglican church set in a beautiful 12th century abbey in the heart of historic Malmesbury, Wiltshire. Our usual Sunday services are at 9 am, 10.30 am and 4 pm and you are very welcome to join us. (Note: all services suspended until further notice during coronavirus emergency.)

The Abbey

With the tomb of King Athelstan, a 15th Century Bible, the crest of Henry VII and a breathtaking Norman porch which illustrates the Christian salvation history, Malmesbury Abbey is one of Wiltshire’s top tourist attractions.
