‘Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ (Matthew 22:37-39)
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 Minster Kitchen 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.
A team from Hull Minster offers, as part of its homeless programme, hot drinks and sandwiches to two sites in Hull twice a week. Consistency is key to developing and maintaining meaningful relationships with each individual. We are proud to have not missed a day in almost six years, inclusive of Christmas day and new years eve.
