Advent Carol Service
Sun 1 December, 2019 at 4:30 pm until 5:30 pm
One event on Sun 1 December, 2019 at 7:00 pm
An atmospheric service with music by the Abbey Choirs and readings to mark the beginning of Advent.
Entry is by (free) ticket only. An application form is available to download below or 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.
