York Minster will open for individual prayer on Tuesday 16 June. However, the cathedral will currently remain closed for public worship, including services, and for sightseeing, in line with government guidance, but people can continue to join our worship and explore the Minster online.

See below for a range of resources to discover the cathedral from home.

Join our worship

There are a range of ways to join our daily worship from home, including prayers and reflections by York Minster’s clergy and Sunday services broadcast by the Church of England. You can also join us at 4pm every Sunday for a new digital Evensong service. The service will be pre-recorded inside the Minster and broadcast on our website, as well as via our Facebook page and YouTube channel.

Support us

Like many organisations, York Minster is now facing a huge financial impact due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

We receive no regular income from the Government or Church of England for the maintenance or running of the Minster and rely on the income we generate from those who visit the cathedral. During these difficult times, we continue to work to further our Mission and safeguard the future of the cathedral. If you would like to support us in this work, please consider making a donation below. Thank you for your support.
