Join the Abbey Association

Join the Abbey Association

Unlimited free entry to the Abbey is just one of the advantages of joining the Abbey Association. There’s much more on offer – and we’d love to welcome you.

We are first and foremost a working church, offering up to 28 services each week. Everyone is welcome to attend these services and there is no charge to worship. The Abbey is independent and receives no funding from the Church, the Government or the Crown, so we are entirely reliant on our visitors, donors and volunteers whose invaluable support keeps us running.

By becoming a member of the Westminster Abbey Association, you can play a part in helping to preserve over 1,000 years of British history. From the upkeep and maintenance of the fabric of the Abbey to our ongoing conservation work ensuring that the Abbey’s treasures can be enjoyed by generations to come.
