Welcome to Preston Minster and the Church of St. George the Martyr. We offer places of worship and prayer in the heart of Preston, with services taking place every day. We are a living community of prayer and worship, as well as accommodating various local events, ranging from musical concerts to social projects.
The Vicar’s Welcome:
Preston is a vibrant city with a rich history and exciting future. We have three centres in the city that with other churches ensure that there is heart and soul in all its life.
On Church Street the Minster is a large building which acts as the home for many events, both formal and informal, from Mayor making and Judges’ service through to Student concerts and art events. At its heart for over 1300 years has been prayer and celebrating Jesus in our midst through the worship offered, especially on Sunday mornings with a Eucharist at 9.30.
Hidden near the Corn Exchange is a gem. St George’s is a church whose outside does not prepare you for the beauty within. It is a church which celebrates God’s glory and presence through the richness of the Anglo Catholic tradition and on a Sunday its Mass is at 11:15.
The County Council’s imposing building over the railway lines has a modern chapel of Christ the King. Here every Tuesday at 12 noon there is a service of Holy Communion to which all who work in County Hall are welcome. It is a privilege to be able to pray in the heart of local government for the entire council and all part of what makes Preston and Lancashire so special.
I have lived in Preston for over 7 years and it is my joy in 2018 to be connected to the City Centre Parish as its Vicar. All the church buildings are beautiful and distinctive, all their communities connected to them are committed and faithful both to our City and to their faith in God.
At all churches you will find a warm welcome and we look forward to seeing you there!
The Ven Michael Everitt – Vicar of Preston
