Welcome to the Leeds Minster - a place of worship and service for the fast-moving modern city of Leeds.

Leeds Minster is one of England's best-loved Parish Churches and at our heart is a sacred choral tradition.

Our origins date back to the greatest of the Victorian Vicars of Leeds, Dr Hook. It was during his 22-year incumbency that today's Minster Church of St Peter at Leeds was built - an astonishing building consecrated with great ceremony on 2 September 1841 in the presence of a vast congregation including the celebrated Florence Nightingale. In 2012 we were granted Minster status.

Today you can visit the Minster for worship - whether for a few minutes of calm contemplation at a mid-week Choral Evensong or for the richness of a Sunday Choral Eucharist.

We invite all to walk around and soak up the atmosphere of a building rich in history and heritage, light a votive candle, listen to the famous organ and round it all off with an enjoyable light lunch in our Refectory.

If you do have not the time for an extended personal visit, but happen to pass the Minster on foot, by train, by bus, or in your car, do listen out for the Bells and do pray for us as we pray for you.

Visited the Minster for the first time on Friday. This was the parish church of my family for a number of generations. There is so much to see. He volunteers were so helpful and Ann was knowledgeable with regard to the history of the Minster. I would recommend a visit to there.

It was fantastic to see the Parish Church kept in such fantastic condition. It was also welcome to see the memorial plaques to the 'Greatest English Church Musician of the 19th Century'. Go for evensong. An unique experience...

Went on a trip with my daughter's school. This place is rather 'high church' with all the paraphernalia on the walls and Victorian propaganda. However the staff were very nice and the children were engaged by them. Look out for the 'penny window' where the poorest people contributed to the church - its is the only truly Christian part of...

Might be unusual but my hubby and I shared a picnic in the grounds of this church when we visited Leed's. It was a sunny day and we needed to rest our feet and get refreshment. Very sweet.

This lovely church has been renamed Leeds Minster & is a peaceful haven in the heart of the busy city. The staff are friendly & welcoming & the doors are always open for visitor's. The Crypt underneath the church, serves hot food to the cities homeless, which is well worth a donation.

I do not consider a church "an attraction" rather the house of God - but I write to say that Leeds Minster is a favorite place of mine. It is warm and welcoming. Moved to Leeds a few months ago and find much peace in attending the various services and walking into the prayer chapel and lighting candles for loved... More
