Corona Virus

The Abbey is following the advice of the Church of England authorities, based on national government discussions and decisions.

At the moment and for the near future we are:

  • Not holding services with congregations in our churches.
  • Cancelling home groups, other groups and events in the Abbey.
  • Not having Little Stars, Welcome Tea or Lent and Holy Week events.
  • Closing the Abbey.
  • The Ministry Team will be available by phone.
  • Contact the church office on 01666826666 and office@malmesburyabbey.com.

We are keeping all these arrangements under review and will do our best to follow government and church guidelines as they become available. The PCC are setting up a small group to monitor our response to events and to make suitable pastoral and spiritual resources available.

Primarily the advice is:

  • To wash your hands often.
  • To self-isolate if you have a “new persistent cough.”
  • To keep in contact with neighbours and friends – set up a group with  your neighbours (6 approx) by telephone, WhatsApp and/or Facebook.

If you are isolated, have practical needs that can’t be met by family, friends and neighbours, or would like a phone call from one of our pastoral team, please call the Parish Office on 01666 826666 or email office@malmesburyabbey.com.

Please follow the advice offered here:
