The voice of Bath Abbey

From morning prayer to Evensong, Christmas carols to wedding bells, Bath Abbey rings out with the sound of worship. It can be a softly spoken prayer or the rich notes of our choirs, an inspiring passage in a sermon or bible stories brought to life for children. This is a place to listen and sing, hear and be heard. 

Learn more about our services, and when our world-class choir will be filling the Abbey with music – or, if you can’t join us this week, listen to inspiring sermons at home. Discover groups and get-togethers for parents, children and young people, and meet the clergy and musicians who make it all happen. Spoken word and singing voices – it’s all here.

If you're new to the Abbey and would like to become more involved in Abbey life, we'd love to hear from you. Please contact us by email: office@bathabbey.org or by calling 01225 422462 and a member of clergy will be in touch with you.
