Especially if you’ve never been to the Abbey for a service before, or perhaps haven’t been to a church for a few years, we’ll try to make you feel as welcome as possible. Please don’t be afraid to say ‘Hello, I’m new here’ to those around you before the service. And after our popular 10am Sunday Sung Eucharist, visit our Welcome Table and/or join us for coffee in the Church Rooms, next door to the Abbey. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
The Eucharist on the first Sunday of the months is tailored towards families and young people. Our informal Way In service on the Third Sunday of the month takes place in our Church Rooms. This is a good place to explore faith in an environment that’s perhaps less daunting than the imposing architecture of the Abbey.
If you’re familiar with Church of England services, our main Sunday services are the 10am Sung Eucharist and 6.30 pm Choral Evensong. Both feature sermons, hymns with organ and music from our choir. The Eucharist and Evensong are said daily throughout the year on other days of the week. There’s a weekly service at St. Swithuns, our daugher church on the road to Winchester. BCP Holy Communion is celebrated in the Abbey at 11.45am on the third Sunday of the month.
