Tickets for Advent Carol service

A number of our major services are ticketed to avoid long queues and to ensure that as many as people as possible have a seat. Everyone who wishes to attend either will need to apply for a ticket. Tickets are free. An application form can be downloaded from here or is available from the Abbey Office:

We thank you for your patience and support. Ticket applications will be processed strictly in order of receipt and there will need to be a strict limit on the number of tickets issued to any one family or household. The churchwardens will, in every case, make the process as fair as it can possibly be, and will be glad of everyone’s co-operation and understanding.


Our hope is for everyone to have a meaningful and memorable experience of worship during Advent and Christmas. Regretfully, our seating capacity this year is greatly reduced due to essential building work. While we have increased the number of major services, unfortunately not everyone will be able to get a ticket. Furthermore, many seats will have limited or no direct sight of the area from where the service is being led.

For this reason, we are taking part in the Church of England's #FollowtheStar campaign and have joined together with our sister church, St Michael's Without in Broad Street, BA1, UK, to encourage as many people as possible who don’t regularly worship at the Abbey to attend a service at their local church. This aims to share with everyone the joy of going to a local church Christmas service or event, and  encouraging everyone to go further on their Christian journey. For more information, please visit:
