Tewkesbury Abbey Foundation

Tewkesbury Abbey is first and foremost a parish church. The Vicar and the Abbey team provide a wide range of worship every day of the year, from quiet Morning Prayer up to magnificent Carol Services with congregations of 1,000. Different styles of worship meet the needs of the people, and the Abbey has a particular tradition of excellence in music and liturgy with fine choirs and superb organ playing.

The Abbey is an outstanding building, described by Simon Jenkins as, ‘One of England’s most splendid churches,’ but its ministry extends far beyond its walls. Visiting the sick, contributing to the food bank, supporting charities and social projects are all essential in the day-to-day work of the team.

Tewkesbury Abbey is not well-endowed financially. The Church of England only provides resources for the clergy stipends and all other costs have to be met by the Abbey itself. Contrary to popular belief there is no government funding for the building which is of national and international significance.

Tewkesbury Abbey Foundation has been established as a new way of supporting the Abbey in the fulfilment of its objectives which are:

Mission and Ministry

To empower Tewkesbury Abbey as a centre of effective Christian mission and ministry in Tewkesbury and beyond.

Music and Liturgy

To uphold and advance Tewkesbury Abbey as a centre of excellence in music and liturgy.

Maintenance and Development

To ensure that the Abbey, its grounds and associated buildings are well maintained, and that development projects are adequately funded.

The key task which the Foundation has set itself, is the raising of significant new funds in order to enable the Abbey to carry out its work, to develop that work in every area and to sustain that position going forward. The aim is to achieve this through two strategies, firstly through the raising of extra income each year to meet the current funding gap, and, secondly, by building a fund which will, over a period of time, be of sufficient size to support all that the Abbey does.

Many people have carried out excellent work in fund raising over the years, striving to raise the resources that are necessary in order to meet these costs, but it is now time for a new way forward in order to build on existing and vital giving.

We are developing a co-ordinated, strategic long-term and efficient approach to fund-raising and fund-management to develop our effectiveness in approaching and looking after donors, planning and publicising events and exploring external sources of finance such as charitable trusts, public sector grants and corporate bodies.
