St Andrew’s Orthodox Bookshop

Our bookshop offers a modest selection of books in English and Greek on a range of topics relating to Orthodox Christianity, which we hope to expand over time. We also stock other items such as icons, incense, and prayer ropes. The bookshop is open on request during church opening hours, except for when a service is in progress.
