Advent and Christmas

Let the Abbey bring you comfort and joy this season

This year, things may be a little different but there are still plenty of ways that you can celebrate Advent and Christmas with us. Whether you are joining us in person or online, we hope you make Bath Abbey your home for Christmas.

Please note that the majority of the services in the Abbey will require tickets via Eventbrite, so we recommend you keep checking Eventbrite or visit this page for updates.

Christmas tree of hope

Bath Abbey is offering you the opportunity to come in and place a star on our tree of hope. We invite you to submit your hopes and prayers for 2021 and to make them part of our Christmas prayers here at the Abbey. If you would like to send your personal message to [email protected], we will be glad to write those prayers, thoughts, hopes for next year onto these stars and hang them on our tree for you.
