16th-century church is next to York Minster
A two-stage competition has been launched to find an architect-led multi-disciplinary team for the re-ordering of a grade I-listed church next to York Minster.
The 16th-century St Michael le Belfry requires essential repair works so the church authorities are using this as an opportunity to refurbish the building.
They want the church to be re-ordered so it becomes a “significant and attractive” resource to engage and welcome people into the family of God. The work will embrace current technology while “remaining faithful” to the building’s heritage, said Keith Williams of Keith Williams Architects, who will be one of the judges and is acting as architectural advisor on the RIBA competition.
