Malmesbury Abbey

The Church continues to be alive and active, but during the current health emergency our buildings must close.Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, Malmesbury Abbey and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.

Please note, though, that even though they are no longer carried out in the Abbey building, our worship of God and our care for each other continue.

Church

We are an Anglican church set in a beautiful 12th century abbey in the heart of historic Malmesbury, Wiltshire. Our usual Sunday services are at 9 am, 10.30 am and 4 pm and you are very welcome to join us. (Note: all services suspended until further notice during coronavirus emergency.)

The Abbey

With the tomb of King Athelstan, a 15th Century Bible, the crest of Henry VII and a breathtaking Norman porch which illustrates the Christian salvation history, Malmesbury Abbey is one of Wiltshire’s top tourist attractions.
