Online Prayer Requests

We recognise that not everyone is able to visit the Abbey. During this time of uncertainty, we invite you to submit a prayer request online for yourself, for those you love or for those at the frontline of fighting the Coronavirus. Your requests will read and offered up by one of the Abbey’s priests and a small team of specially appointed members, currently led by The Revd Evelyn Lee-Barber.

May you know God’s strength, comfort and peace at this time.

Please email us your request to or fill in the form below. We would be grateful if you're able to keep your requests to a maximum of 150 words.
