The Church

St Lawrence Church

St Lawrence Parish church is a Church of England anglican parish church in the diocese of York. We are a quirky and wonderful church: traditional in style but young in character, catholic, community-minded and inclusive, with people who’ve been coming here all their lives, and people who are just in York for university. We hope to be a beacon of hope in our parish, shining with God’s love and encouraging the people in our community. We serve our community at crucial times in their lives, through the church’s ministry of Baptism, marriage and funerals. We have a special ministry to students and to the elderly.

We seek to worship God through the sacrament of the Eucharist and in the beauty of holiness.

There is a community hall available for hire, the churchyard for quiet reflection and solace and interment of cremated ashes.
