Communicant members of all Christian Churches are welcome to receive Holy Communion.

Parish Breakfast is served in the Monastic Workshop, following 8:30 am Holy Communion service.  Tea & Coffee is served in the South Transept following the 10:00 am Service.
We hope you will be able to join us.

Home Communions: If possible, Clergy will arrange to make a home visit once a month to bring Communion to those unable to attend a service in the Abbey. We also hold occasional services in the Abbey for this group of people, arranging transport and help, to allow the the opportunity to join with others for Communion.

If you are new to the Parish, please ask one of the Sidespersons for an address card so that we may duly contact you.  If you are visiting the Abbey, we hope you will enjoy your time with us.  Please make yourself known, either to the Clergy or to a Church Warden.

Choral Evensong is sung at 6:30 p.m. on Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in school term time. For music at services click here
