St Lawrence Parish Church is home to a growing congregation of all ages and many backgrounds, worshipping on a site used for Christian worship for perhaps 1,000 years. Some church members have lived in the parish all their lives - at the same time, the church welcomes large numbers of students, many of whom live very nearby.

There is a broad range of services types, and both the Prayer Book and the Common Worship series are used, although St Lawrence has a largely traditional aesthetic. St Lawrence is one of only only a handful of City of York churches still managing to sing Evensong every Sunday, at 6pm. Have a look at the 'special events' tab for details on special services for particular occasions (e.g. Christmas and Easter services).

There is a great deal of other activity happening at the church - including bellringing, choral singing, the over-60s social club, talks, concerts - and tai chi...

Whether you're an interested student, a resident parishioner, or from another part of York and looking for a good church home - or wondering if you should be - please do come along to a service one Sunday soon. If you are just visiting York, come and say hello - you would be very welcome.
