Visiting Southwell Minster

With the easing of Covid-restrictions, the Minster is assuming a more familiar feel whether you are coming to worship or to visit.  View Worship and Visitor updates for more information.

We are delighted that the Chapter House has reopened, after the installation of a new cantilever lift which provides full access to this glorious part of the Minster.

Worship Online

The Minster’s worshipping community extends beyond the doors of the building, across the diocese and beyond. Our Sunday worship continues online – please join us for one of our live-streamed services if you cannot make it in person.

About Southwell Minster

For more than 900 years Southwell Minster has been opening its doors to welcome visitors, pilgrims and worshippers. We have placed hospitality in the name of Jesus Christ as being at the heart of what we want to offer the 100,000, or so, people, who come in a typical year. As well as being a beautiful and fascinating historic building, Southwell Minster is a community of clergy, other workers and many worshippers, contributing to the public life and private lives of the town and the whole diocese.

This message from the Dean was recorded before the current pandemic.
