Elstow Abbey is open

Elstow Abbey Church is still able to offer corporate worship. However, please see update below and read the 'Weekly Message' page(s).

Following the Prime Minister's announcement of a nationwide lockdown on Monday 4th January we are still allowed to open the Church and participate in communal worship. However, we are very conscious that the new virus strain brings an increased risk of infection From now on we will be having one service on a Sunday with restricted number in the building (30). We also urge anyone who has any degree of vulnerability through age or other causes, not to come to church but to stay safe and stay at home. We understand that many people may not want, or physically be able, to come to Church at this time, so we will continue to provide online resources for worship. Do let us know if you are struggling in any way and be assured of our continued prayers.

Sunday at 10am Holy Communion
A simple said service lasting about 30 minutes and with a maximum of 30 people in church

A prerecorded service of meditation will continue on-line via YouTube and this website (see link under 'Public Worship')

We plan to contune a live streaming of the 10am service this Sunday (January 24th) via Facebook Live.

Please observe social distancing, wear face covering and use hand sanitizers provided when in the church building at any time. Track and trace is also implemented in the church.
