The Universal Christ

During these dark days of the Universal COVID-19 crisis
we have been inspired by the Coptic Icons of
“The Harrowing of Hell” Holy Saturday
and the Apostles Creed,
“He was crucified, died and was buried:
He descended into Hell.
The third day he arose again from the dead…”

Jesus, the Christ rises from the Earth,
the Sun for his Nimbus Halo,
Redeemer of the whole Universe.
In the band, Jesus, the Christ leans into Hell
pulling to himself a man and a woman
symbolising all those waiting there..


Order Paschal Candle

This year we have added our Paschal candle to our online shop which will offer a quicker and more straight forward way to do the payment. The online shop takes both Credit Card or Bank Transfer payment.

If you are unable to order through the online shop, you can still order using the manual order form. Download this order form below, fill it up and email it to us.


Due to the size and weight of the Paschal candle, if you choose to have your candles posted, we will ask you to “Request a shipping quote” at the checkout page.  Please read this quick info page to see what this means.

OR Collect

If you choose to collect your candle, call us at 02 4236 0011 and arrange for a date and time.

On arrival, you are required to scan our COVID Safe Business QR Code to check in.

There is a collection point just outside the Abbey front door on a bench to the left.

Important: We appreciate your understanding not to walk around the abbey grounds as the Abbey is technically still in lock down.
