The beautifully restyled Minster Café is open to welcome guests from Tuesdays to Saturdays, 09.30 to 14.30. Come and enjoy Stokes coffees, teas, cakes and light refreshments within our historic Minster, or outdoors in the revamped St. James Square on fine days.

Grimsby Minster is the church at the heart of our borough of North East Lincolnshire and is a church for everyone.  It is the place to which the town turns at moments of great joy and of great sadness, and we are proud to host civic services, the annual Service of Remembrance, as well as weddings, baptisms, and funerals.

But we are much more than that.  We are a church that welcomes all, whether for worship, for coffee, to get warm in the winter, for peace and quiet, to reflect, for music, for art, for prayer, for help, or for any other of the many reasons people have to visit our building. We are a church that cares about you
