  • Welcome to King's Lynn Minster - a place to be at home with God.

    Here at the Minster, there is lots to see and do. Please click on the tabs above or see this week's calendar below for more information.

    In December 2011, The Bishop of Norwich dedicated The Priory and Parish Church of St Margaret as King's Lynn Minster.
     
    The Minster is situated in the historic surroundings of the Saturday Market Place in the heart of King’s Lynn. Founded by the first Bishop of Norwich, Herbert de Losinga, in 1101, the Minster has offered a welcome to pilgrims and visitors for over 900 years.

    The Minster is open all day, every day.

    Visitors are welcome to join us for any service or just walk around and enjoy the atmosphere of this Historic and Holy Church.

    You can contact us at The Minster Office, St Margaret's Vicarage, St Margaret's Place, King's Lynn, PE30 5DL; tel: 01553 767090. Email: office@kingslynnminster.org

    Restoration and Development Appeal - £651,000

    To repair decaying ancient stone and glass and provide essential facilities.

    So far we've raised £454,500 - £48,000 in donations and local fundraising since the appeal was launched last July. "THANK YOU" for that amazing support.

    Four months ago the target was £270,000 by the end of 2017. But enough has been raised to start repair work early next year, and the deadline for the full amount is now May 2018. £160,000 is needed by then - that's still a huge amount, so help is still very much needed!

    See "Latest News" for more information - and please support the appeal.
    Give by clicking the "Just Giving" link below. Thank you.

  • The Chapel of St Edmund and The Peace Globe
    In 2006 the area under the South West Tower was reordered to form an area of peace and tranquility just inside the West Door of the Church. It has proved to be a popular area of prayer and contemplation.

     

     

     

    The Chapel was dedicated by the Bishop of Lynn to St Edmund maintaining the link with, the now closed St Edmund's Church in North Lynn.

    The plaque on the west wall reads:

    Chapel of St Edmund

    Created 2006

    In Memory of

    William Hurdman

    Vicar 1995-2002

    "A Man for all people"
