UPDATED 02/03/21: The Abbey will be closed from Monday 8 March to Thursday 11 March. It will reopen on Friday 12 March for private prayer and reflection only (Sun-Sat, 12-2pm). The Abbey (including Tower & Shop) is closed for general sightseeing and visiting until 17 May at the earliest. In support of the Government's request for the public to stay at home, there will be no services in the Abbey; instead, we will be offering worship online and via social media.
Due to the Coronavirus crisis we have restricted numbers at services at this time. We welcome families and children, particularly on the fourth Sunday in the month, when we have a dedicated family-friendly service at 10.15am. This service is bookable through Eventbrite. Please see our Abbey Services section for more information.
The Abbey welcomes children and young people of all ages, particularly to the 10.15am Holy Communion with Abbey Choir, when there are group activities for:
|Creche||Babies - 2 year olds|
|Sparklers||Up to School Reception|
|All Stars||School years 1 - 3|
|Fireworks||Year 4 upwards|
Children are invited to begin the service at the back of the Abbey where the leaders then take the children into their groups to do different activities such as crafts, drama and discussion surrounding the Scripture Union material being taught that week, all being tailored so that it is interesting and appropriate to the different age groups.
Everyone rejoins the congregation in time for the Notices and the Peace with their families. When there is sometimes an opportunity to ‘show and tell’ something from the morning’s activities.
