Facilities and features



Our Building

Open for individual prayer

St Mary Abchurch is Grade I Listed, as being of 'exceptional interest', on the Historic England Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.

Music and Worship

The church is available for hire for rehearsals and performances, and thus occasionally hosts special events including recitals and concerts by guest artists. It is also available for small freestanding exhibitions.

The church organ is now awaiting some minor repairs, but there is an electric organ for use in the duration.

Wednesday's weekly service of Holy Communion is drawn from the Book of Common Prayer.
