Stunning church with exquisite stained glass windows. I attended a morning family communion service with integrated Christening. All stewards and officials were warm and welcoming and the officiating clergy were friendly and had a modern outlook. Great occasion.

I have kept saying I wanted to visit the minster since we moved here a few years ago but never did. Last week I was able to spend half an hour there in the company of a really well informed guide. The minster was much better than I could have imagined and its history is fascinating. I am now aware... More

Halifax minster goes back many centuries. On the walls of the church inside, there's inscriptions recording the lives of Haligonians hundreds of years ago, which is touching by itself. The building's interior is expansive, made all the more beautiful by the painted glass artwork. There's a small shop which offers religious items aswell as postcards, books and DVDs about Halifax...

What a enlightening visit with a group of special needs students, the staff who were at the Minster were very helpful an considerate to the needs of our students. The Minster is an absolutely stunning church with a lot of local history. Well worthy of a visit.

This is a beautiful building that continues to be a central hub for Christians in Halifax. For historians it is packed. The ceiling in the Nave is particularly impressive as is the organ. The welcome is always warm and tea and coffee are available on request.

My daughter was baptised in this Minster a year ago, my wife and I didn't know what to expect regarding the building, or the vicar but on both accounts we were very happy. The Minster is very welcoming friendly, and the Minster building itself is quite frankly stunning. It's so well hidden from the bustle of the town it really... More
