Project Description

St Thomas’ Shop

Opening Hours

Our shop has temporarily moved to the Church Hall Foyer and is opening again this coming weekend (5th-6th December 2020). Charity Christmas cards and Advent Calendars will be on sale as well as our regular items.

Our opening hours are:

Monday – Saturday: 10.30 am – 3.00 pm (lunch-break 12.00 pm – 12.30 pm)
Sunday: 10.30 am – 1.00 pm.

We have the only remaining Christian shop (apart from the Cathedral) in Canterbury which is located conveniently around the corner from our Church in Canterbury Lane.

Our marvellous volunteers can also help you with a variety of items and gifts including bibles, missals, prayer books and mass booklets, religious books, candles, cards, First Communion and Confirmation gifts, holy medals, icons, pilgrim badges, rosaries and statues. Vatican Publications are also available.

To volunteer in our shop is a wonderful opportunity to:

  • bear witness to our faith.
  • have the time and space to be a listener.
  • share in the joys and sorrows of the people we meet daily.
  • benefit from these added dimensions to the ministry.
  • allow others to benefit from reading, learning and meditating on their faith.

If you would like to help, even a morning every now and then, go to our Volunteering page.
