The Abbey will re-open for sightseeing visitors from Friday 21st May.
In the meantime, we remain open for worship and you are welcome to join us at our daily services. We are also open for individual prayer from 10:30am - 12:30pm, Monday to Saturday.
Our “Arty Abbey” session invited families to explore the Abbey building using art techniques.
Sketching shapes and patterns was encouraged through games and challenges before families were invited to paint images of the Abbey or their favourite sections and patterns.
All families throughout the day were invited to contribute to a final montage of the Abbey’s West Front to encourage thinking about scale.
At different times of the day, or in different seasons, the light falling in the Abbey will light up something that you have walked past a million times and never seen before.
