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
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.
I feel very privileged to work here. I take so much pride in working for a beautiful place like the Abbey, it’s unique.
