St Helen Stonegate - sanctuary
Note the unusual ironwork candleholder on a cantilever bracket above the aumbry. This is believed to be the work of Ronald Sims, responsible for the post-war improvements to the church.

The altar, seen here in Lenten array, came from the nearby church of St Martin le Grand where it survived wartime bombing.
St Helen Stonegate, York
One of the many city churches in the centre of York, St Helen's has ancient origins (possibly 8th century) as a site of Christian worship. The present building was largely reconstructed in 1857 by W H Dykes on earlier foundations, but incorporates the C14 south arcade and C16 north arcade. It is still open as an Anglican place of worship, though not on Sundays. Listed grade II* (list entry 1256800). The listing was written in 1954 and makes no mention of the post-war restoration of the church from 1955 onwards in which the organ was renewed, stained glass installed, and the chancel reordered in 1972.
