Hull Minster is an active church and relies on the generosity and giving of our congregation and visitors to fulfil our vision. Every penny given goes towards sustaining and growing the work of Hull Minster, including supporting the most vulnerable in our city, keeping our building open for visitors as much as possible, and hosting community events.
Your contribution will directly serve the vision of Hull Minster to be a place for everyone in Hull and beyond to Worship, Enjoy, Explore and Belong.

The Grand Organ Restoration Fund
Hull Minster (Holy Trinity, Hull) is the United Kingdom’s largest medieval ‘town church’. Its splendour illustrates the ambition, hope and piety of medieval kings and merchant-princes. This magnificent space has resounded with prayer and song for more than 700 years. Accordingly, this church is home to one of the greatest musical instruments of the British Isles: The Grand Organ of Hull Minster.
The Grand Organ was last rebuilt in 1938. Since that time, it has served the people of Hull through the devastation of war and the hardships of industrial decline. This vast musical engine of wood, leather, metal, springs and wind systems has worked tirelessly to meet the demands of 80 years…little wonder that it now needs a thorough overhaul to restore its reliability and magnificence.
Will you help the Grand Organ sing again?
Hull Minster is as old as the city itself and is one of the few remaining medieval buildings in Hull. Built over 700 years ago for the people of Hull, the the Transformation Project seeks to return Hull Minster to the centre of the community, as a positive force in the city. This can be achieved through the hard work of staff, volunteers and by transforming the building to flourish in this modern time.
Phase 1 and 2 of the project completed in March 2018 which saw our dilapidated church yard integrated with Trinity Square, a large open space created in the Nave creating flexibility for a multitude of uses and improved facilities, which includes the installation of new lighting, heating, sound and AV systems, improvements to electrical cabling, an accessible toilet, and fixtures and fittings for a new café servery area and shop.
We are now fundraising for Phase 3, the final phase of the project which is currently in the planning stages. We want to be able to welcome more visitors, further restore the church building, provide up to date facilities, and secure the curation and exhibition of our heritage.
