Only popped in here on the off chance as my mother liked the architecture. Never knew that it was the baptismal place of guy Fawkes. The lady guide inside asked my son aged 10 if he wanted to a challenge (look for answers to questions) and then work out the buzz word at the end for a prize. He really... More

Just beside the York minister. Small church compared to that. But quaint and full of treasure. It's very historic and even King Henry the 8th had visited it before I believe. I enjoyed looking at the walls and reading the words engraved. So many lives, some many people are intertwined with this church. It's not fantastic or huge. But it... More

Beautiful little church in the shadow of the great Minster. Prayer cards to write so someone can pray for you. Candles to light for loved ones. Attentive guides to tell you the history and show you the little details you may miss. Contributions voluntarily given to keep this beautiful church going. Definitely recommend a visit.

This diminutive church, very much in the shadow of York Minster was built on the site of the Minster's belfry in the 1530's, just before the reformation. Guy Fawkes was born in the adjoining street and was baptised in the church. It is free to enter and is quite dark inside. The dark wooden screen behind the altar is the... More

Excellent sermon, good worship, the start of what looked to be a well thought out lent sermon series. Some friendly people sat near us but we were not welcomed by many even though we did hang around for a bit for coffee in the hope of conversations... I suppose the church has many visitors and it is a large congregation.... More

Staffed by friendly and knowledgeable volunteers, I was greeted as I entered and handed a leaflet about the church by a smiling lady, who asked where I was from. There was choir music playing, it was very pleasant, and a striking change to the money-grabbing unfriendliness next door in the Minster. This church is newer, being 16th century, and is... More

This church is not to be overlooked. It a quant facility that stands on it own next to the Hugh York Minster next door. Built in 1525 and well maintained it allows you to get up close & personal. On the day we visited the church members were presenting a Living Nativity outside the church along with the Christmas Hymns... More
