    Addressing a letter to a church minister

    How should I start and close the letter.
    Presumably not "Dear Sir"
    Do I still use "yours faithfully"?

    Re: Addressing a letter to a church minister

    Your salutation will depend on what church this is.

    For a Catholic priest or an Orthodox priest: Dear Father ....... [nb the Orthodox Churches have a very complicated system, but this is a sensible approach]

    For an Anglican priest: either Dear Mr ........ or Dear Rev. .........

    For a non-conformist (Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian etc): Dear Mr ......

    If you are addressing them by name, you end "Yours sincerely".
