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. « less

St John the Evangelist was founded by John Harrison, a wealthy wool merchant in 1634AD. Harrison was well known for his acts of philanthropy and his contribution to the civic development of Leeds. Amongst his acts of benevolence Harrison built twenty almshouses between 1628AD-1634AD, and he gave land and a new building for the Town Grammar School. John Harrison and other leading merchants petitioned Charles I for a new Borough Charter and this was granted in 1626 allowing Leeds its first town council. Leeds was increasing in size and population by the beginning of the seventeenth century, and it seems it was in reaction to the growing demand for another place of worship that the building of St John the Evangelist was embarked upon. « less
