Much has been enjoyed and much is to come

Worth Abbey Pilgrims have run some unforgettable events from Easter egg hunts to guided walks, to special services in the Abbey Church and lectures on Benedictine spirituality. We have been consistently overwhelmed at the popularity of these events. A particular highlight was hosting the Relics of St Bernadette in October 2022 as part of the UK tour.

We are limited in what events and activities can be provided by our imagination and volunteer effort. If you have an idea for an event, please share it – and consider lending your support to someone else’s idea so that we can make it a reality. 


Easter Celebration on Sunday 31st March 2024

The Abbot and Community welcomed a large number of people to Easter morning Mass at Worth Abbey followed by a family-friendly celebration outdoors amid the blossoming flowers of spring organised by Worth Abbey Pilgrims. There was lots off chocolate for the younger guests and wonderful Easter Cake and refreshments  for all ages.

Following on from the popularity of our Advent talks, which you can watch below, the Abbot and Monks of Worth Abbey presented a morning of talks and reflection followed by Midday Prayer and a light lunch. The topics were as follows:

9th March: Half-Way Home - The Mid-Point of Lent

16th March: Looking Towards Easter - The Season of Lent as prelude to Easter.
