Whenever I get the chance to visit St George’s Church,I do. My parents got married here in the early 1950’s. It’s well kept and the architecture is outstanding.

Doncaster Minster is part of the Church of England. We offer a welcome to all who might want to visit to view the building, take some time out of a busy day, to offer a quiet prayer and light a candle or worship with us.
