Abbey Church:

The Abbey Church is open for private prayer and attendance at all monastic and parish liturgies.

Books for the monastic prayers are available from underneath the Narthex by the north doors of the church (behind the font).

To help us all keep one-another safe, please may we ask you to observe the following guidelines:

  • If you are experiencing the symptoms of covid-19, or have recently tested positive for the virus, please remain at home until you recover.
  • Please sanitize your hands at the door as you arrive.
  • Please consider wearing a face-mask inside the Abbey Church, as an act of charity towards those who remain vulnerable to the covid-19 virus.
