Join Us

OK, but I've got some questions...

Who's asking ?

We are a community drawn from all walks of life by the call to worship God here at Leeds Minster. We are called in different ways: some may for instance be drawn by the formality of the liturgy, others by the music, and others by the building or the sense of community. Some may feel hesitant about belief, or may wish to explore their own spirituality at their own pace. That's OK - faith is a journey, and spirituality is personal and in some ways individual as well as communal. God's call is open to all, and so are we.   Find out more...

When and how ?

You are welcome to join us in worship at any of our Services. The main service is at 10.30 am on Sunday morning, and there's a chance to meet people afterwards over a cup of tea or coffee. All services are free and there's no need to book - just turn up. We simply and respectfully ask that you wear a mask, out of consideration for others. Find out more... 

 

What will happen at a service?

Our services are an act of worship. You will be given a booklet to guide you through the service, and you can join in with the hymns and prayers, listen to the readings, sermon and music, and take communion if that is your practice at another church. Or you can just be there and take it all in. Find out more...
 
There will be an opportunity to talk to a member of the clergy or a Warden after each service.

Do I have to believe ?

Christian belief comes in many forms and with many degrees of certainty and doubt. Making sense of the Christian faith can be a lifelong journey, especially in the modern age. You will not be asked whether or what you believe, but you may find that it doesn't make sense to join us if you are not open in some way to the possibility of faith.

For many, it is the act of worship, the practice of prayer and the belonging to the community that leads them into belief.
