Hundreds of churches set to open for Yorkshire Churches Day

Yorkshire Churches Day takes place on Saturday 16 September and hundreds of churches are getting ready to welcome visitors. It is a chance for every place of worship in the county to open up and showcase the amazing history and heritage found inside their building.  

The initiative has been warmly welcomed by Stephen Cottrell, the Archbishop of York and President of the YHCT: “Yorkshire Churches Day is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our County’s churches. At the heart of nearly every one of our communities is a church. They are there to serve and welcome everyone. However you choose to engage with these wonderful buildings, remember, they are not merely places of heritage and history, but vibrant centres of worship and community serving Yorkshire today.”
