Archbishop Sentamu visiting the Minster

The clergy and congregation of Dewsbury Minster welcome everyone, those of all faiths, and those of none, to this ancient place of pilgrimage and worship. As a living church it offers you the peace and stillness of the beautiful Paulinus Chapel, a place beside us in worship, music to uplift you, a bustling refectory and 1400 years of history.

‘Grace mercy and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ be with you’.

Dewsbury Minster is a place we hope you will enjoy visiting. This is a Christian Church and is part of the Anglican Communion – a worldwide fellowship of churches in which the Christian Faith is growing, especially in Africa, South America and the Far East.

The Christian Community has met to worship God on this site since AD 627. Throughout the Centuries people have found, within its walls, a living relationship with God through Jesus Christ. It may be that you are unsure about your own beliefs. We hope that you will be able to visit this ‘Mother’ Church, perhaps as a ‘pilgrim’– someone on a road of discovery, letting God speak to you through the people you meet, the displays, and the atmosphere.

Dewsbury Minster is part of The Team Parish of Dewsbury with

St John the Evangelist, Dewsbury Moor;

St Peter’s, Earlsheaton;  Holy Trinity , Batley Carr

&  Trinity Community Centre
