Covid update:

We continue to recommend the wearing of facemasks, hand sanitising and social distancing in church.

Welcome to the Abbey Church of St Mary the Virgin - a Church of England parish church in the Diocese of Coventry and the See of Ebbsfleet, serving Abbey Green's people in Nuneaton. Here, in this beautiful place, we continue to worship Almighty God on the same holy ground and among the remains of the same buildings where the nuns who gave this town its name first gathered for worship nearly 900 years ago. However, though these walls are steeped in centuries of prayer and tell of great history, it is the life of the Abbey Church today that is its greatest treasure. Here you will find a thriving, loving, and growing community committed to living out and proclaiming the Good News of the Saving Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Whether you are already a practising Christian, thinking of returning to Church, interested in exploring the Faith, or simply curious to discover a little more, you will always find a very warm welcome here - why not come and join us and be a part of the next chapter in the story of this wonderful church in the parish of Abbey Green.

We are pleased to announce that Fr Roger Butcher will be our new vicar. He, along with his wife Ginny and family are coming to us from the Piddle Valley Benefice in the diocese of Salisbury. We very much look forward to their arrival.


Please keep them in your prayers along with those in the benefice they are leaving. 

Information on dates will be provided as soon as we are able.
