VolunteersWe rely on a team of over 100 volunteers to keep the Abbey open every day and running smoothly.

Some act as stewards and  welcome visitors or help in the shop to enhance the experience and enjoyment of people visiting the Abbey. Some sing in the choir or officiate at service as servers. Other work behind the scenes with vital tasks such as editing the monthly parish magazine, cleaning or helping to run the many concerts and other events that we host.

People want to help for many different reasons. Some want to serve the Abbey as an extension of their faith and worship, for some it comes from a love and appreciation of the building, its history and architecture. Others come to meet people, learn new skills and to be part of the wider Abbey community.

We are always looking for people from any age group, background or faith with time to spare regularly.  If you would enjoy being part of the Abbey community, do get in touch via the Contact Us page.IMG 1136 001
