Volunteering at York Minster


York Minster relies on the support of over 400 volunteers to enhance the experience and enjoyment of people, worshiping at and visiting the cathedral.

Volunteering at the Minster gives you the chance to discover more about one of the world’s most magnificent cathedrals and become a part of the thriving Minster Volunteer community. Our Volunteers give a little time and make a valuable contribution to our welcome, worship, learning and work together. They also:

  • Learn new skills
  • Meet new people
  • Join the Minster Community that has worshipped and supported the Minster for generations
  • Receive exclusive discounts
  • Have free entry into the Minster plus a guest
  • And opportunities for tickets to events as well as unique volunteer events

We welcome people from all age groups, backgrounds and faiths (or none) who are interested in giving some of their time on a regular basis. We offer a wide range of opportunities in and around the Minster from Stewards to Flower Arrangers, Servers to Undercroft Volunteers.
