Worth Abbey Pilgrims

Abbot Mark and the monks of Worth Abbey invite you to join Worth Abbey Pilgrims. The Abbey Pilgrims is a network of friendship and fellowship centred at Worth Abbey, offering opportunities for deepening our Christian faith, travelling together in prayer and service, and offering a warm welcome in the Benedictine tradition to all our friends and those who are discovering Worth for the first time.



Friendship and Fellowship on Easter Sunday – Worth Abbey Pilgrims are on their way!

We enjoyed lovely warm sunshine on Easter Sunday and we also felt the warmth of welcome at Worth Abbey. Thank you to everyone who joined in the activities on Easter Sunday and to the large team of helpers. It was very good to see so many people of all ages enjoying being together on Easter Sunday. Thank you to Father David and Father Patrick for organising the two walks. The Easter egg hunt proved a great success and was very popular with the children!

We would be grateful for any feedback to make sure that we offer events that parishioners would like to attend.

There are two more dates for your diary.

There will be guided tours, a guided walk on the estate, opportunities to meet the monks and to learn more about the history of Worth Abbey and what goes on at Worth Abbey today. Refreshments will be available all day on the South Terrace overlooking the Weald and the South Downs. The Retreat Centre will be ready to welcome visitors.
