Coronovirus update

Very sadly, the Abbey is now closed in line with government guidance. During this difficult time, we urge you to pray for one another, for the world and for our leaders. We urge you also to support the most vulnerable members of society as far as you possibly can. For urgent pastoral needs, please telephone the Area Dean, Rev'd Jeremy Thompson, tel 01434 600 268

In line with government guidance, the Abbey is now closed until further notice. Our clergy will of course continue to say the daily offices at home and will be praying for us all.

For urgent pastoral needs, please telephone the Area Dean, Rev'd Jeremy Thompson, tel 01434 600 268

Meanwhile the Church of England is expanding the number of digital and print resources to support people praying at home and growing in faith in new ways.

More than 800 live streaming services were added to AChurchNearYou.com last week and the Church’s “Time to Pray” app, which includes simple daytime and night prayer services, is now free to everyone . Meanwile, an accompanying daily audio offering on SoundCloud and iTunes was launched on Friday, with the Archbishop of Canterbury leading worship.

In addition to the #LiveLent reflections, which are available both in written and audio form, there will be a new series of mental health reflections.

Finally, the Church’s smart speaker apps provide a range of prayer and other Christian resources for people to access at home. In the last 30 days, the number of people using the Alexa app has risen by 70 per cent.

The Daily Prayer App: The app offers Morning, Evening and Night Prayer from Common Worship in both contemporary and traditional forms. All services can be accessed online and the app downloaded free for iOS and Android devices.
