The United Church Dorchester

United in faith, united in action

Church Shop


Church ShopSince the Church Shop opened in the year 2000, it has become a focus for discerning shoppers in the town who enjoy the friendly atmosphere and the extensive range of Christian books, Fairtrade foodstuffs, greetings cards and gifts. 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.

Our book selection is carefully chosen and regularly revised and offers a comprehensive range of Christian-based subjects including lively children’s stories and activity books.

Religous BooksWe have built up an enviable reputation for our gorgeous greetings card selection over the years, offering cards with and without Bible texts, all of them tasteful and attractive along with prayer cards and notelet packs at competitive prices and from a variety of suppliers.

Greeting CardsLooking for a gift for someone you cherish? Come and browse in our shop where you can find reasonably priced ethically sourced jewellery, bags, purses, ornaments and even mouse mats and “magic” mugs.

Our CD collection includes the Naxos range of classical music as well as much loved brass bands, hymn selections, sacred music and even retro jazz and easy listening favourites to relax with after a long day, truly something for everybody.

Fairtrade ProduceThe shop is open every morning from 10am to 12.30pm, is staffed entirely by volunteers and all our profits go towards church funds and good causes.

And finally, take a look at our plant stall outside the door – our plants are just 50 pence each, are locally grown and donated by customers and friends. New plants – and customers - are always welcome!
