Our volunteering community makes Hull Minster the welcoming, caring place it is. Without their support and commitment, not only are we unable to open our doors, but it would be impossible for us to carry out the Minster’s mission.

We welcome volunteers of all ages and backgrounds from those able to give 1 hour a week to 3 days a week.
There are a variety of roles throughout the Minster which gives individuals the opportunity to find the right one for them. They include:

  • Welcoming visitors into the Minster

  • Working on the café

  • Running the shop

  • Assisting the Facilities Manager with his duties

  • Being part of the photography and media team

  • Production Team for events

  • Preparing and cooking the HM lunch once a month

  • Supporting delivery of education programmes

  • Helping visitors on guided tours and tower tours

  • Assisting with administrative duties of the Minster

We are always looking for new skills and are grateful for whatever you can offer. We encourage you to get in touch so we can get to know you better and find out how you can contribute.

Benefits of Volunteering

We are committed to ensuring our volunteers are well trained and gain skills and experience. This is achieved by providing support in the following ways;

  • Training courses

  • Workshops

  • Pastoral support and guidance with staff members

  • Meetings with more experienced volunteers or friends groups

  • Informally trying out new roles within our organisation

  • For those looking to get into work, we are happy to provide references for our volunteers.

By listening to our volunteers we know that during their time with us they make friends, become more active and confident, and develop a range of new skills.
