In the light of current government guidance during this current lockdown and because of the increasing rates of Covid 19 infection in the city. The Parochial Church Council, with the agreement of the Bishop has decided to close the building initially for two weeks and then this will be reviewed. We feel we cannot encourage people to travel or gather at the Minster for worship or private prayer at this current time.

We keep the city in our prayers at this time – Keep safe everyone.

Although our building may be closed the community of the church continues to worship and pray – see our Facebook and YouTube channel for regular worship
