It is open from 10.00 a.m. – 2.00 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays but purchases may be made whenever the church is open to the public.
The gift shop aims to provide an accessible source of Christian literature, stationery items and gifts to encourage learning about and expressing the Christian Faith. At present it is the only such resource in Banbury.
If we haven’t got what you want we are always willing to make special orders.
The Mustard Seed is Banbury’s only Christian gift and bookshop. It is now run by St Mary’s, following a move last year from its previous base in the Methodist Church. A dedicated team of volunteers from the URC and Anglican congregations manage and staff the shop, which stocks and supplies a wide range of religious books and literature, Bibles, cards for all occasions, Traidcraft products and faith-themed gifts and candles as well as providing Communion wine for many churches in the area.
Our mission is to equip and encourage churches and individual Christians in and around North Oxfordshire by providing a friendly and informed retail outlet to support them as they seek to explore and to share the love of Jesus.
