St Mary's Priory Church serves as a parish church for the town and community of Abergavenny and encompasses a significant part of the rural Coldbrook estate, stretching from the ancient Llanellen Bridge, to the south, to the top of the Sugar Loaf mountain. It is part of an Incumbancy wihich also includes St Peter's, Llanwenarth and Holy Trinity Abergavenny, which itself is part of the Greater Abergavenny Ministry Area. There is a daughter church, Christchurch, in North Street, serving the western parts of the parish. This was built in the latter half of the 18th Century with the generosity of the Nevill Family, the Marquesses of Abergavenny, who once lived at Nevill Hall, now the district hospital. Christchurch was built as an iron church, and was then wood-clad. It has a belfry and spire and has been carefully restored in recent years. St Mary's Priory Church, Abergavenny is one of several ancient Benedictine foundations in the Diocese. At the foundation of the new diocese some thought was given to St Mary's Priory Church becoming the Cathedral Church, with the attraction of a fine Priory house (demolished c.1952), adjoining land and facilities. When can I visit the church? You can, of course, visit the church for any one of our services, which are held every day - please see Worship - Service dates. The church is open every day for visitors to view our fine monuments or sit in quiet contemplation. Opening times are Monday to Saturday 9am to 4.30pm. There is no charge, although St Mary's does cost £400 per day to run so any voluntary contribution would be very gratefully received.
