Coronovirus update

In line with government guidance, the Abbey building is currently closed but the Abbey community is still very active and busy.

You can contact the Rector, the Rev’d David Glover, on 07886 289 311.

In line with government guidance, the Abbey building, unfortunately, is closed until further notice. However, the Abbey community continues to be active and busy and keen to serve the needs of the town in whatever way it can. Our services are now being held online via Zoom and we would love you to join us. We are holding three services each week and you can take part by using the links below. Of course, worshipping online is not the same as being together in the Abbey, but these services still enable us to worship God, pray together, hear God’s word and support each other.

Abbey Morning Worship, every Sunday at 10am. This is our main weekly act of worship and will be zoomed from the Abbey.
