Wymondham Abbey is one of the grandest religious buildings in East Anglia. It’s a magnificent Norman church established in 1107 as part of a monastic foundation. It was later enlarged and embellished with a particularly fine angel roof. The famous gilded altar screen by Ninian Comper is among its many splendours. The unusual twin towers are a prominent local landmark.
We’re an active and lively parish church, with services every day and plenty of events and activities. We’re open almost every day of the year. We have stewards on duty and a well-stocked shop on site. Our new Lottery-funded Abbey Experience displays and additional facilities ensure that your visit will be enjoyable and memorable. We’re truly a place for welcome, worship and wonder.
Wymondham Abbey are delighted to announce the appointment of Rev'd Stephen Sealy as Assistant Priest. Stephen is currently Vicar of St. John the Evangelist, Sidcup and Priest-in-Charge of All Saints’, Foots Cray in the Diocese of Rochester.
His date of arrival in Wymondham has not yet been finalised, but we are hoping he will be with us before Advent. Please hold Stephen in your prayers as he prepares for a new ministry. We are also praying for his current parish that they will find a worthy replacement.
On Saturday 23rd September, Wymondham Abbey will be hosting a Food and Drink Festival with a difference. The festival will be majoring on vegetarian and vegan food, which is proving to be a major draw – it’s an issue attracting more and more interest as people consider the ethics and environmental impact of the food we eat.
There'll be stalls, demos, entertainment, pop-up cafe and much more. Some of the finest producers in East Anglia will be showing and selling their produce. Join us for a fun and enlightening day. More details here
