St Michael le Belfrey is an Anglican church in York, England. It is situated at the junction of High Petergate and Minster Yard, directly opposite York Minster, in the centre of the city.
The present church building was built between 1525 and 1537 and replaced a church that dated back to at least 1294. The church is famous for being the place where Guy Fawkes was baptised on 16 April 1570. Fawkes later became a Roman Catholic, which led to the failed 1605 Gunpowder Plot. The church was also the scene of the wedding of Christopher Levett of York, the English explorer, to Mercy More, daughter of the Revd Robert More of Guiseley, Yorkshire, in 1608. It is also sited near to the place where the Emperor Constantine was proclaimed a Roman Emperor.

Lively and challenging worship, but no Palm Sunday hymns on Palm Sunday!

In the shadow of the Huge York Minster, I felt sorry for this beautiful building and took a picture
