A very warm welcome to Stoke Minster, where 1,300 years of sacred heritage and history are held at the heart of Stoke-on-Trent. Founded around the time the Staffordshire Hoard was buried, the Minster still boasts its Anglo-Saxon stone font and the remains of a carved Saxon preaching cross. The church, dedicated to St. Peter ad Vincula (St. Peter in Chains), has served the people of the Potteries for centuries and it holds strong links with the industrial heritage of the city as the burial place of both Josiah Wedgwood and Josiah Spode.
Whether you visit for history or heritage or to experience sacred space you will find your time spent in the Minster is well rewarded. As the Minster for the city we serve the community with many civic and cultural events. The church is also the home of a thriving Christian congregation who meet every Sunday to worship God, continuing the Christian tradition since Anglo-Saxon times.
All are welcome at our services. Father David Lingwood, Rector of Stoke Minster. Candles of Joyful Remembrance Service Sunday 2nd Nov 2014 at 6.30 p.m. – A chance to remember our departed loved one and to light a candle for them. MINSTER MEDIA… CONNECTING PEOPLE TO GOD…
