Donate a chair or a pew

A fitting memorial


Now you can celebrate the best things in your life by making your mark in Hull’s amazing medieval church by dedicating a chair or pew in their name.

What makes Hull the place it is? It is the people, their jobs, local businesses, sports clubs, social groups and community groups, past and present.

These dedications are an opportunity to celebrate a lost loved one, your family, your organisation, your regiment, your team or your company and become part of Hull Minster’s amazing transformation.

Phase 2 of our £4.5 million transformation project was completed in March 2018 which was the second step in creating an amazing place for the whole community to enjoy. People who dedicated chairs and pews played a strong role in making this happen. Our final phase will see over 700 years of heritage curated and exhibited, the construction of a new cafe extension, and vital repair and refurbishment works to be undertaken in the East End. Your support by dedicating chairs and pews will greatly contribute to the success of this project which will enable this historic Minster to be sustainable, and therefore safeguarded, for future generations.

And right at the heart of this wonderful place will be your dedicated message for all to see, on a special plaque, placed on the back of a chair or on a pew.

The chairs we have chosen are as elegant as they are comfortable, in keeping with our wonderful church. We ask that for each chair you donate £150 – that’s how much the chair costs us to buy.

The pews have been relocated from the central nave to the edge, carefully reworked to preserve the magnificent and historically significant hand carved ends. Each dedication is £500 and inscriptions are placed on a solid brass plaque.

Alternatively you can find leaflets dotting around the Minster which you can return to the Hull Minster Parish Office (10a-11 King Street, Trinity Square, Hull HU1 2JJ) for the attention of Jonny Bottomley.
