Christmas Eve 2019 – Midnight Communion

Tue 5 November, 2019 at 8:00 am until 5:00 pm

With Abbey Choirs of Girls’ and Lay-Clerks

Be there at the very start of Christmas. A celebration of Christ’s birth, and with him the birth of new hope for the world. All welcome, no reserved seating or tickets required.
An informal service for all the family with traditional carols. All welcome, no reserved seating or tickets required but we expect long queues and the Abbey to be full to capacity. 


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 our most popular services, unfortunately not everyone will be able to get a seat. 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.
