UPDATED 19/04/21: Bath Abbey is currently open daily 12-2pm for private prayer and reflection. We are offering a hybrid of communal worship in the Abbey and online. Most services will need to be prebooked via Eventbrite. The Abbey (including Tower & Shop) is closed for general sightseeing and visiting until 17 May at the earliest.
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: email@example.com or by calling 01225 422462 and a member of clergy will be in touch with you.
Under current guidance, our worship on Sundays will include music from the organ and solos by members of the Abbey Choir. However, the Abbey Choir will only return for public worship once it is safe and practical to do so. For a full statement from our Rector and Director of Music, please see our Latest News.
