At Dorchester Abbey the day begins, as it has done for hundreds of years, with Morning Prayer.
Members of clergy and people from the community gather in the quiet stillness of the Birinus Chapel for a said service involving Psalms, readings from the Bible and prayers to help prepare us for the day ahead.
This simple, gentle service is a wonderful start to the day, enabling us to lay before God our hopes, expectations and concerns about the coming hours, and reminding us that as we journey we are not alone; God is with us.
You are very welcome to join us.

Following the Abbey’s centuries-old tradition of welcome and hospitality, the unique Tea Room reaches out to the people of our own community, to our many visitors and to many people living further afield. Up to 20 people can sit in the Tea Room itself, at two communal tables, and in fine weather many more can sit in the Guest House garden at picnic tables or on the lawns in the Cloister Garden. You may expect a warm welcome from the volunteer army of helpers and be delighted with the delicious range of home-made cakes and a good cup of tea.
