Westminster Abbey and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Abbey remains open for worship and you are welcome to join us at our daily Eucharist service if you are able to travel here safely within current government guidelines.

However, for the time being we are unable to open the Abbey and St Margaret’s Church for general visiting.

Integrity

What does it mean for a public servant to have integrity? Is it the same as being consistent? What if events demand a change of mind, policy or law? Does working with and for others support integrity or corrode it? Is the creation of a public persona a failure of integrity or a way of protecting the personal self? Can institutions have integrity? Can the sustain important values when individuals lose sight of them? What of the people whom public servants serve: how can the public’s integrity be understood and respected?
