Westminster Abbey's 11th century sister church St Margaret is set to scrap its Sunday services after 900 years, according to a report in The Times.
The church which is located in Parliament Square is known as the 'parish church of the House of Commons' and has a congregation of around a hundred.
They will now have to merge with the congregation at Westminster Abbey, the sight of royal weddings and coronations.
Like many institutions the Abbey has fallen on harder times, losing income from visitors during lockdown which went towards funding Sunday services at St Margaret's.
The church has a long history. It was founded in the twelfth century by Benedictine monks and the building dating back to the 15th century. It was primarily built to serve local people who wanted a simpler place to worship than the abbey.
In the past it has held services of welcome for MPs at the start of parliament. Now it's thought the church may act as a gallery, conference centre or a base for filming in the main abbey.
