We welcome everyone who wishes, to come to the Abbey to pray. There are different ways to take part in prayer at the Abbey:

  • Light a candle – pray for someone by lighting a candle at one of the three candle stations.
  • Write a prayer – near the pulpit there is an opportunity to write a prayer and leave it to be offered up with others at one of our services.
  • Join in our shared prayers – every hour prayers are said in the Abbey by the duty Chaplain.
  • Visit a Chapel space – the Birde Chantry (to the right of the High Altar) is normally reserved for private prayer.
  • Join the Prayer Trail – a trail leaflet is available near the Pulpit, enabling visitors to pray in different places around the Abbey.
  • Speak to a duty Chaplain – if you would like someone to pray with you then please approach the duty Chaplain.
