The life of Westminster Abbey revolves around the daily pattern of worship; Morning Prayer, Evensong, and the Eucharist. These services are open to the public and our congregations include people from all over the world. Whether you are Anglican (Episcopalian), or of another Christian Church or of another faith, or seeking or doubting, you are warmly welcome to take part.

In addition to the daily round of services, the Abbey hosts a number of services throughout the year to mark anniversaries and special occasions in the life of the nation. We are also a place of pilgrimage, the site of the Shrine of St Edward the Confessor, King of England 1042–66.
