The Churchmouse Bookshop is closed during the COVID-19 health emergency, as we stay home and keep one another safe. However, the charity partners we support are still doing vital work in these challenging times: The Food Bank at St John the Divine, Threshold Housing, and Our Place. You can still donate to the Churchmouse, and the donations will be divided between these three partners.

Meanwhile, we are still preparing for re-opening, and donations of books can be dropped off by arrangement. Please contact [email protected] if you would like to donate books!

The Churchmouse Books Experience
Come in and relax

Escape the worries and cares of modern life; unwind with a relaxing visit to St. Mary’s Churchmouse bookshop. Set in the warm ambiance of St. Mary’s nave, Churchmouse Books offers the visitor opportunities to browse, read, join in conversation, and enjoy a hot cup of coffee or tea. If your preference is just to reflect and meditate, the soft light filtering through St. Mary’s celebrated stained glass windows contribute to a soothing atmosphere. 

The Churchmouse Books Selection
From best sellers to obscure treasures

Churchmouse Books offers thousands of pre-owned titles to let you pursue just about any interest. New titles are available weekly; popular categories include Mysteries, Thrillers, Romance, Science, History and Travel. If Art, Biography, Politics, Theatre and Poetry are your thing, Churchmouse will likely have title to suit. If Recipes, Cooking and Home Décor ideas are what you’re after, Churchmouse won’t disappoint. There are too many other categories to list from Animals, Business, and Canadiana to Religion and Reference. Come out and have a look.
