Welcome to Croydon Minster
We believe that Croydon Minster is a church with a living past, a vibrant present and a hope-filled future. And you’re welcome to connect with us online or in person.
We hope everyone can feel able to be part of the community here – diverse ages and backgrounds – as together we explore the deep meaning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; as people have done here at this ancient and enduring spiritual heart of Croydon for over a thousand years.
Ours is an open church in spirit and practice: everyone is welcome. That’s an important value to us. We open ourselves to God in word and sacrament on Sundays, and day by day, enriched by the music of the Anglican choral tradition. We keep the building open during the day as a place where people can come to pray, sit, rest or just ponder and be still.
We are honoured to serve the civic life of Croydon and to be the place of many baptisms, weddings, funerals and other occasions for the people of our town.
THE MINSTER IS OPEN FOR WORSHIP
As is permitted, we wish to enable public communal worship – the Eucharist – to continue at the Minster during the current lockdown. However it is really important that anyone with concerns about their health or catching the virus should remain at home. We continue to make virtual provision so that everyone in our parish can continue to have access to the church and the possibility of prayer in this holy place.
