Matins & Evensong
Matins takes place at 11.15am on certain Sundays and lasts for approximately 60 minutes. Evensong takes place at 3.30pm on Sundays and lasts for approximately 45 minutes. These formal services combines the memorable cadences of Thomas Cranmer's Book of Common Prayer with a distinctive repertoire of English Church music. During term-time these services are sung by the Abbey's choirs of Girls and Men, or Boys and Men. During the holidays these services may be sung by visiting choirs. A sermon is preached at Matins.
It is easy to be anonymous in these large congregations, if you choose to be so. If you would like to make more of a connection with the Abbey community, then don't forget to fill in a Welcome Card.
