Please see the home page for details of our current service pattern
This page shows our pre-Covid pattern of services.
The Abbey is a place where people have worshipped God for many centuries. At least three services take place every day, often in our many side-chapels.

Our range of services reflects the variety of people who worship in Tewkesbury Abbey. Many of Tewkesbury’s civic services during the year take place in The Abbey, for example the annual Remembrance Sunday Parade.

Sunday Services

This is the regular pattern for Sunday services but please check the calendar on the homepage to confirm the services for a particular Sunday

Holy Communion at 8:00am

A said service of Holy Communion. A quiet meditative service using the Book of Common Prayer.

Parish Eucharist at 9:15am

A family friendly service using contemporary language.
On the first Sunday of the month, we have 9.15 Together service, our Family Service, when our children are encouraged to be present for the whole service, giving opportunities for the whole family to enjoy worshiping together.
At other times LINK 9.15 takes place in the Sacristy in the Abbey for those children who wish to attend. Children aged 4 to 18 are welcome.

Sung Eucharist at 11.00am

This is a more formal service at which we use traditional language. Our worship is enhanced through the use of incense, bells and by the singing of our robed choir of men, women, girls and boys. LINK 11 takes place in the Abbey for the choir and other children.

Choral Evensong at 5pm

The singing of our choir of women and men enhances the beauty of the language of the Prayer Book which is used at this service.
An induction loop for those with hearing aids is available at the main services.
