How can you help?

Lancaster Priory is one of the best-loved and most historically significant churches in the UK. It is central to the North West’s cultural vibrancy with its agenda-setting music events, and regularly features as an important venue for major public occasions. But we can only continue as we are through support from people like you.

What it costs us every year.

It costs £250,000 to run Lancaster Priory every year – or £685 for every day.

The Priory receives no regular funding from the Church of England or the government. Money is raised through donations from members of the congregation, from visitors and supporters. Our concerts and other activities also raise funds for the ongoing life and ministry of the Priory Church.

The costs of maintaining such a large and historic building are enormous as are ever increasing energy bills plus expense incurred in our ministry to the City of Lancaster and beyond.
