CONGRATULATIONS to Bradley Smith and to the churches and Christian community in Chichester who have joined forces to reopen the former SPCK bookshop at St Olave’s Church, North Street, Chichester.

The shop  — which will be trading under the name St Olav Christian Bookshop — is due to be formally opened at 10am on Saturday 12th December 2009 with a short service of dedication led by the Rural Dean of Chichester. Refreshments will be available throughout the day and the staff  are looking forward to welcoming whoever can get along to join them.

Bradley writes:

Thank you all for your support in recent weeks and months – we have found it very meaningful indeed and we hope we will be able to serve you well in the future. We ask for your prayers for this new venture.

The new shop will be governed by the St Olav Trust, a board of trustees made up of representatives from the different churches in the city. Opening times after the official opening will be:

  • Monday – Friday, 9.30 am – 5.00pm
  • Saturday, 9.00 am – 5.00pm

Now book the date in your diary, bookmark the blog in your browser and head on over there to cheer them on — even better, to do some of your Christmas shopping!!

    Many congratulations to Bradley and the St. Olav Trust- delighted by this news, and wishing them well for the future.

  6. Living in the South of England I am contacting my diocesan press officer to ask him to make sure the news is on the diocesan website and paper. Well done to all involved in getting this beautiful building and long standing ministry rescued from the hands of the Brewers Grimm.
