St Mary's Priory Abergavenny: The Priory Centre

WORSHIP at St Mary's Parish Church, St Mary's Priory, Abergavenny

Services at St Mary's


There are currently three services taking place at St Mary's Priory each Sunday:  Said Eucharist at 8.00am, sung Priory Eucharist at 11.00am and Choral Evensong at 5.00 pm (although Evensong takes place at Christchurch North Street on the 1st Sunday of the month). The list of services can be found on the weekly Pew Leaflet or on the noticeboard in the porch.  

The church is currently open for visitors who wish to see the fine monuments or sit in quiet contemplation Monday to Friday from 10.00am until 2.00pm and Saturday from 10.00am until 3.00pm; sometimes we will open longer depending on availiability of staff.   Please note: the Priory site will be closed on Monday 3rd June for visitors.

There is no charge although St Mary’s does cost £1,000 per day to run, so any voluntary contribution would be very gratefully received.



Please note that, for the foreseeable future, only Sunday services and Wednesday 1000 service will be taking place.  Friday evening Choral Evensongs will begin again on Friday 24th April.
