We are thrilled to be at the heart of a bustling vibrant city and feel privileged that so many people, locals and visitors alike, choose to celebrate Christmas with us.
Our aim is to give our Abbey visitors a meaningful and memorable encounter with the message of God’s love, coming to transform our humanity in the birth of Jesus Christ – whether you are from the other side of the world, a regular worshipper, attending a concert, or visit just once a year.
The large number of special events and services taking place in November and December means that the Abbey may be closed to visitors at certain times.
Please always check our Opening Times or with the Abbey Office before visiting.
Worshipping with us
We are delighted to welcome you for in-person worship this Advent and Christmas. A number of our services are now ticketed in order to allow as many people as possible to attend and to try to keep queues down to a minimum.
In previous years, all our tickets have been taken up. Our hope is that as all members of the Abbey community wishing to attend Christmas services are able to do so. However, we do ask for your patience and understanding as places are allocated, and suggest that you may like to obtain a maximum of 4 tickets per family, to ensure opportunity for the greatest number to be with us. Thank you so much!
Please check our Opening Times or with the Abbey Office before coming to worship outside of services.
Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy Christmas.
