Social Action

Hull Minster is taking positive steps towards addressing key issues in society with the aim of improving people’s lives and building a real sense of community. This is achieved through organised activities, informal support and pastoral care.

Social groups give comfort and support to those who may be lonely, isolated or bereaved; volunteering gives purpose to the lives of many helping them to learn new skills and take part in fulfilling social activity; our lunches and café provide a meeting place and somewhere to have a nourishing meal in the company of friends.

Over the past four years, we have staged a wide range of events, pushing the building to its limits. Examples have included: concerts (from classical to rock and all things in between), exhibitions, drama productions, a banquet, fashion shows, real-ale festivals, community events, markets and business events.

We see these not as ‘secular’ events, but a key part of our mission as a Christian community in the heart of our city.
