The Minster Church of Saint George, Doncaster stands at the heart of the town of Doncaster, where a church has stood for over 8 centuries. The present church was built to the designs of George Gilbert Scott between 1854-1858, after the mediaeval church was destroyed by fire in 1853.
The Minster offers a wide range of Sunday and weekday services within the mainstream Anglican tradition drawing on a strong musical and choral tradition to enhance the worship. It also serves as the Civic Church for Doncaster and hosts many of the Civic Services for special occasions. In 2008 the Minster celebrated of the 150th Jubilee Anniversary of the present building and everyone joined together in a year of celebrations. Currently the building is undergoing major restoration – please assist us by making a contribution to our Minster Appeal.
