Reverend Matthew Porter, vicar at this church, said:
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with these experienced and creative architect-led teams and look forward to seeing how they interpret our requirements as a contemporary, faith-filled church family, worshipping in our Grade 1 listed building. We are excited to see how they might create a beautiful, flexible, modern space which blends thoughtfully with the church’s architecture and history.”

The church is a vibrant Christian Church based in the centre of York known commonly as “The Belfrey”. They have an overall congregation of around 800 people, praising God in Christ through various styles, encouraging joyful worship and practical bible teaching. Our vision is to be serving God’s Transformation of the North. They are part of the Diocese of York and the Church of England.

The main church building is St Michael le Belfrey church (next to York Minster). St Cuthberts’ church (on Peasholme Green) is the venue for the House of Prayer. They believe that life is best lived in relationship with Jesus Christ. For further information visit or follow us on Twitter
