The Abbey is no longer open for public worship, general visiting or private prayer. Meanwhile, the community of Abbey clergy are continuing to worship and pray, in-line with government guidance. They are also producing a podcast to mark key liturgical events.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.
It’s a privilege to live and work here – the Abbey really is the heart of the country and its history.
