I liked this church the moment I stepped into the compound. Yes it is a small church, not a huge grand one but something about this church grabs and touches my soul. The peace and serenity I felt by just simply sitting there is surreal! I would love to go back and visit again!

Because this church stand next to the York Cathedral, it is often overlooked, but it is still worthwhile to pay a visit to it.

This church is adjacent to York Minster which is within its parish. Guy Fawkes was christened here in the sixteenth century. Services are held regularly.

After a beautiful, but somber evensong at the Minster, we joined the faithful at St. Michael's for a great evening of worship. While I appreciate both forms of worship (evensong and St. Michael), I felt much more at home and connected to the Holy Spirit at St. Michael

This is a well known charismatic Anglican Church very close to the Minster. It is famous too for being where Guy Fawkes was baptised in 1570! It is not really a very attractive church inside but you will receive a very warm welcome and no entry fee is required. There is a short mid-week service on Wednesday at 12.30 which... More

St. Mikes is a fine building to visit and unusual in that it was constructed over a short period of years. The building contains later additions such as the organ and Victorian pews, plus a host of monuments and dedications. Opening is manned by volunteers who are always happy to chat. There are three services on Sundays: 09:00 - Relatively... More

While the Minster boasts a bold 15GBP entrance fee, St. Michael le Belfrey stands as a testament to the niceness of the free alternatives in life. The church is very well maintained and staffed by some very kind and informative folks, and even if you do go in to see the Minster I would say to stop in here as... More
