Tuesday - Saturday


Hull Minster - Trinity Square - Hull - HU1 2JJ

In May 2017 Holy Trinity Church was re dedicated as Hull Minster.  Following five years of church growth and two years of internal and external refurbishment, this honour marks the transformation of the church into an urban minster; in acknowledgment of our growth and ministry and in anticipation of what is to come. On Saturday 14th September the Minster will play a full part in the Old Town Feast Day held in Trinity Square.

Becoming a Minster is both about recognising what we already do in serving our city and the wider church and looking to expand this work in the future.  During Heritage Open Days, visitors will be able to see what has been achieved and some of the work still in progress, meet volunteers and meet the church team.


Hull Minster dates back to the late 13th Century when Edward 1 granted the former settlement of Wyke a Royal Charter and re- named it King’s Town upon Hull. The church is therefore as old as the city itself. There are many signs to its medieval roots so come in and explore

The Minster will be participating in Heritage Open Days and will be open for visitors throughout this period. Our café, Minster Kitchen, will be serving lunches, fresh soup, homemade bread and cakes throughout Heritage Open Days.

Activities for children of all ages will be available to enjoy. You can drop in for a history talk or sign up online in advance for a tour of the tower.
