The minster is the seat of the Archbishop of York, the third-highest office of the Church of England, and is the mother church for the Diocese of York and the Province of York. It is run by a dean and chapter, under the Dean of York.

Services in the minster are sometimes regarded as on the High Church or Anglo-Catholic end of the Anglican continuum.
