Scroll to explore

York Minster will hold a Service of Thanksgiving and Commemoration on Sunday 11 November at 9.30am to mark the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice at the end of the First World War.

The service will precede the annual Service of Remembrance in the City Memorial Gardens at 11am after The Archbishop of York, the Acting Dean of York, members of the Civic Party and representatives from the military and police process from the Minster to the Gardens, which marks the culmination of a six week period of reflection and commemoration in York for those who served during the conflict.

All are welcome to the 9.30am service and to follow the procession down to the Gardens. Those wishing to stay at the Minster to mark the 11am silence may do so as part of the 10.55am Sung Eucharist.

The programme is part of the national #Armistice100 commemoration with events and services taking place around the country to recognise the significance of the end of the First World War, and the sacrifice made by so many men and women during the conflict.
