St Mary's is extraordinary, with beautiful stained glass. Amazing that it has stood on this busy road for hundreds of years, but time has taken its toll and it is in need of some restoration. Despite that, the priest and congregation get on with serving the community, e.g. running a soup kitchen. Services are Anglican and very traditional, but it's... More

St Mary's Lowgate is the oldest parish church in Kingston upon Hull, even having survived the German bombing of WWII. It is currently fund raising to restore it to a place for local people to use for worship and for other business and recreational purposes. The church continues to be an oasis of peace and tranquillity in the heart of... More

This church is bright and friendly, with some wonderful stained glass and is well worth a visit if you are in the area. Great peel of bells, if you are lucky enough to hear them.
