Since opening, the Church Shop has become a focus for discerning shoppers in the town who enjoy the friendly atmosphere and the extensive range of Christian books, cards, CDs, DVDs, Fairtrade foodstuffs and gifts from Christian charities.

Many of the Fairtrade items we offer are unavailable at supermarkets or other food outlets and we are constantly updating our range as well as taking special orders from our customers who are seeking that special gift from the Traidcraft catalogue.
