Welcome to the website of Crowland Abbey, a place of prayer and worship in the town of Crowland, Lincolnshire. Although we call ourselves an abbey, we are actually the parish church of Crowland. As such, we are a part of the Church of England in the Diocese of Lincoln.
You can find out more about our history and the St Guthlac scroll, as well as taking an interactive virtual tour around the church and abbey ruins. We hope you can visit us and find out more about our church and Crowland Abbey and we look forwarding to welcoming you to our church.
7 a.m. Holy Communion followed by breakfast in the Abbey Pantry.
If you wish to attend the breakfast, please sign the sheet under the Abbey tower before Monday, 2 May.
Rogation Walk Sponsored by Christians Together in Crowland on 8 May
The custom of praying for good harvests in the spring dates back to the Middle Ages. Today we keep this custom by walking around Crowland, stopping at various points along the way to pray not just for good harvests but for all the people and activities that take place in our community. The word ‘rogation’ comes from the Latin rogare, which means ‘to ask.’ Our walk will take place on Sunday, 8 May, beginning at the Abbey at 3 p.m. and ending back at the Abbey about 4 p.m. At our walk’s end we have refreshments in the Abbey. Join us! Everyone is welcome.
Special service to mark the start of Christian Aid week. (15 – 21 May 2016)
Speaker: Mick Thorley, Christian Aid Regional Co-ordinator
Choral Service by Quorum on 22 May
Quorum, a choir based in Milton Keynes, will be singing at a service of sacred music and readings in the Abbey on Sunday, 22 May, at 6 p.m. Everyone is welcome
