Our Music programme forms a significant part of ministry here at Worth Abbey, and the opportunities to be involved in music draws professional and volunteer musicians from various parts the Diocese and further afield.

The Abbey Choir was re-established in October 2022 in time for the Visit of the Relics of Saint Bernadette which occurred later that month. The main function of the Abbey Choir is to provide an excellent standard of choral music for the main Sunday mass each week, and it tries reflect in everything it sings the richness and beauty of the Catholic faith.

For those who take part in our Abbey Choir, it is a fantastic opportunity not only for social interaction, but is also a fantastic way in which volunteers can help beautify the mass on a weekly basis. We are glad to announce that Worth Abbey Choir will be touring in Venice (Italy) in August 2024 – including singing Mass at St Mark’s Basilica!
