Services

Hexham Abbey has a vision of world in which God's love is enjoyed, celebrated and shared. This is rooted in worship, encountering Jesus Christ, his way of life, and his life-giving message in word and sacrament. A warm welcome awaits you if you'd like to join one of our services.

The schedule below reflects services when times are a little more 'normal' and the Abbey is open. Currently, we are hosting services exculsively via Zoom on a Sunday at 10am and Wednesday at 7pm. If you would like to receive the link to these services, please send an email to admin@hexhamabbey.org.uk.

Holy Week and Easter Sunday

 

Holy Week is the most sacred and precious time in the Christian calendar. It will be wonderful to be able to be in the Abbey again this year but there will also be good opportunities for observing Holy Week via Zoom. Some of the richness and variety of a normal Holy Week will not be possible but it should still be a deeply meaningful time.
