Overview

Welcome to the Leeds Minster - a place of worship and service for the fast-moving modern city of Leeds. 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.

I saw this on my map so wandered the couple of blocks from the Victorian Quadrant area to reach it. My luck was in, as on Fridays at 12.30pm there is a free organ concert. It is a large building with a beige and cream...More

The part of the historical heritage, this piece of old architecture will give you insights of the cities history. Beautiful stained-glass windows, ancient graves inside the minster. Free entrance.

This is a lovely old church with some very pretty stained glass and a lovely etched glass window showing a representation Jacob's Ladder. It's small - when I think of a Minster I think of something like York Minster which it isn't - but it's...More

Nice looking minster and a good quiet place for contemplation. There was a sign up about donations and it suggested going to the shop but the shop wasn't open.

I've been to Leeds many times and admired the exterior of the Minster but never had the opportunity to go inside before. I checked the opening times on the Minster website (weekdays 9-3) and visited a few minutes after opening. I had a lovely welcome...More

The only thing that I liked in this church was the modern glass screen in the entrance porch. I wouldn't call it a Minster.

This doesn't rank for me amongst must see churches being a 19th century layout. However some interesting early monuments from previous versions, a friendly welcome & some free music offered at lunchtimes. Visiting it will also take you into parts of Leeds you might easily...More

Lovely building! Rich in history- especially with all the add on collected from other churches. Beautiful nativity scene.
