Doncaster Minster will be closed indefinitely for all visitors.
In the light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice.
Worship and Prayers will be continued by the clergy on behalf of everyone and we shall be seeking ways of sharing this with the wider community.
The Minster can no longer be opened for private prayer, during the present restrictions.
