Worship & music

Westminster Abbey has been a place of worship since at least the tenth century. We hold services here every day and you are welcome to join us.

Join us at Evensong

Our sung services, usually featuring the Choir of Westminster Abbey, are a special experience.

We produce transcripts as well as video and audio recordings of sermons our clergy and guest preachers have given at recent Abbey services.

They deal with current theological issues, religion and world events, and the interpretation of biblical texts.
