Welcome to Newport Minster!

A website can only give you a flavour of all that we are and all that we do and so I hope that we have the pleasure of welcoming you in person as soon as the Covid19 restrictions ease.

Newport Minster is at a very exciting stage in its life. We are part of the new Parish of Newport and Carisbrooke at the heart of the Isle of Wight and also in the middle of a project which will secure the beautiful architecture of the building outside and transform the inside so that it continues to serve the island as a worshipping space, a fascinating heritage site and also provides community space for meetings, celebrations, and other significant events.

The Minster is more than a building and we have a vibrant and joyful community who care deeply for the town of Newport and the wider island. Once we are fully open again a visit to our coffee shop is a great way to meet them and see the building as well as enjoying great coffee and homemade treats.

We are proud to genuinely welcome anyone and everyone to Newport Minster and hope to see you soon.

The Venerable Peter Leonard
