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.

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

Well, this now re-named Leeds Minster was a challenge to find but worth the hunt. A breathtaking window and wonderful architecture. The staff were informative about the history and design of the building. In particularly liked the ancient cross installed within the building. Worth half an hour (plus) of anyone's time. A little piece of solitude and reflection.

Pleased that the importance of this Church has now been recognised by promoting it to a 'Minster' Church. It is a must to view from the inside and the cafe is a delight with lovely food at a more than reasonable price. Do look out for details of the dinners held in the Minster. What a wonderful experience

Leeds Minster, as it's now called, was my "Alma Mater." I was a chorister there from 1960 to 1967. A recent visit to this beautiful church - not huge like many other cathedrals and minsters - but full of character and ambiance actually brought tears to my eyes and a huge lump in my throat. While standing at the back... More

It's a really grand Victorian building - gothic in style, but industrial revolution in technology, making good use of cast iron. Anglo-saxon crosses too, and the services performed at near-cathedral quality.
