It is with sadness that, in light of Government guidance and following the instruction of our bishops, all public acts of worship are cancelled until further notice and the church is closed for private prayer. This is a cause of great distress, but we continue to rejoice to be united in Christ through our common Baptism and the great gift of Faith. The Vicar will still offer the Mass every day in the Parish and for the Parish - physically alone but united always in constant praise with this wonderful community of St Mary the Virgin and the whole of God's pilgrim people.
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 the people of Abbey Green 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 a 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.
