Shop at the Priory?
When did you last visit the Priory Shop? Are you looking for a gift for a birthday or a wedding, a confirmation or a christening? Then come and see what we have to offer.
Our aim is to sell things which reflect the history of the Priory and which also reflect the priorities and concerns of the present church community. So we have Fairtrade and local items, as well as CDs and DVDs of church music including favourite hymns and carols, Gregorian Chant and Evensongs, Organ Recitals and great Choral works.
For some time the shop has stocked replicas of the wonderful medieval carvings on the choirstalls. To this we have added some ceramics made by local artist Wyn Abbot. Weatherproof and frost-resistant each is a unique work which makes an ideal gift for the garden.
We are extending our range of books and now have children's bibles and our fairtrade crosses, hand painted in El Salvador with pictures of Christ, make a colourful addition to a child's room. Also fairly traded, our 'Cards from Africa' range is helping to provide homes, food and education for youngsters orphaned by the civil war in Rwanda or by Aids. And, our Fair Trade handmade jewellery from Peru provides an income to young mothers in one of the poorest regions of the world.
