Dedicate a Chair or a Pew
A fitting memorial
Celebrate and remember the best things in your life by dedicating a chair or pew in Hull Minster.
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.
Dedicating a pew or chair is 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 ongoing transformation.
Phase 2 of our £4.5 million transformation project was completed in March 2018, the second step in creating an amazing place for the whole community to enjoy. Those 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 and vital repair and refurbishment works 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.
The chairs we have chosen are as elegant as they are comfortable, in keeping with our wonderful church. We ask for for a donation of £150 for each chair you dedicate, which covers its cost and secures a seat in the church for worshippers and visitors for years to come.
The pews have been relocated from the central nave, 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 around the Minster which can be returned to Hull Minster Parish Office (10a-11 King Street, Trinity Square, Hull HU1 2JJ) for the attention of Jonny Bottomley.
