What to expect at our regular services, which are open to the public and free of charge.

You can also visit us for individual prayer in the Abbey from 10.30am - 12.30pm from Monday to Saturday, and in St Margaret's Church from 10.30am - 12.00pm, Monday to Friday.

We have made changes to the way we hold our services. Please familiarise yourself with the changes on our coronavirus page.
