Welcome to Leeds Minster
September 2016 marks the 175th Anniversary of the dedication of the church building now designated Leeds Minster.
To mark the anniversary we are staging a weekend of contemporary floral designs and music between Friday 2 and Mon 5 September, and are also holding a service of celebration on Saturday, 3rd September 2016 at 4pm. The Right Reverend Graeme Knowles CVO will be returning to the Minster as our preacher on this special occasion.

The service will also be the occasion when we shall be thanking Simon Lindley for his distinguished service as Master of Music at LPC/the Minster. Simon has been Master of Music at the Minster since 1975. He has fulfilled that office with great distinction and all of us at the Minster owe him a huge debt of gratitude for all he has done to inspire and develop music-making throughout the City of Leeds for over four decades. Simon will become Organist Emeritus; his roles as City Organist and as Director of the St. Peter’s Singers are unaffected by his retirement from the Minster.
