The Abbey is no longer open for public worship, general visiting or private prayer. Meanwhile, the community of Abbey clergy, privately and following guidance given, will sustain the worship of a building that has been a witness to God’s grace and glory for over a thousand years.Find out more
Westminster Abbey Institute holds ‘under the radar’, tailored seminars with Government Departments, MPs and Peers, Parliamentary Select Committees, and senior staff in other public service institutions. These offer the opportunity to step back and reflect on moral challenges, relationships, values, virtues and other critical aspects of public service.
Public Service Seminars are organised in partnership on a tailored and ad hoc basis. They take place in the Jerusalem Chamber over lunch or during the afternoon, and can include evensong and a private tour of the Abbey.
Please contact the Institute if you would like to consider holding a seminar.
The Shrine of St Edward the Confessor is one of the most powerful features of the Abbey. To stand in the presence of a man who is both a saint and a monarch is awe-inspiring.
