Abbey clergy

The Dean and Chapter

The Dean and Chapter oversee worship at the Abbey. It also looks after our building and runs the Abbey as a visitor attraction.

The Venerable David Stanton

The Reverend Jane Sinclair

Canon of Westminster and Rector of St Margaret's Church


The Reverend Anthony Ball

Minor Canons

The Minor Canons are responsible for all worship and liturgy in the Abbey and in St Margaret's Church. This includes the singing of choral evensong, the celebration of the Eucharist and the provision of Sunday worship, as well as many special and annual services.


The Reverend Christopher Stoltz

The Reverend Mark Birch

The Reverend Jenny Petersen

The biggest challenge we face is actually time – getting all our work done alongside the daily routine of the Abbey as a working church, visitor attraction and home to 1,000 years of history.
