Top of Page Southend-on-Sea, Essex

From the shop's About Us page:
The History of Southend Christian Bookshop Ltd

Established in 1971, we are a group of independently owned interdenominational Christian bookshops, serving Christians throughout Essex.

Our first shop opened in Southend in 1971 and this was followed within a few years by opening a shop in the county town of Chelmsford. In 1989, we opened a shop in the High Street of Brentwood but sadly this had to close in the summer of 2007 due to the fact that Essex County Council wanted to build a road through it. However in 2010 we opened a shop in Pilgrims Hall conference centre, Brentwood, in partnership with its charity. Our wholesale division SCB Services was started in 1990 and today it supplies various products to the Christian book trade...

Editor's Note: Sadly the Chelmsford shop ceased trading in January 2012: see the News & Notes section opposite for detailed reports.

Parkinsons Secondhand Christian BooksThough we are general out-of-print and antiquarian booksellers, the website and shop are particularly strong on Christian theology and associated philosophy. The stock tends towards the scholarly. We are easy to find — right in the town centre. Some idea of the size and range of the stock can be gauged from the "Virtual Tour Of The Shop" on our website. Southport is a very beautiful town with lots of other bookshops and sticky bun shops!

Christian CaféSecondhand Christian BooksSouthport Christian Book Centre is an independent Christian Book Shop which has been trading for over 50 years.

We sell a wide range of Christian books, Bibles, Christian Music and Christian DVDs, cards and gifts. We have a large selection of prayer books, assembly books and Bible studies. We offer a friendly and personal service and free postage on any orders we receive through the shop. We have a children's book room with an extensive selection of children's books with a play area to keep your little ones busy!

We are able to order any book in print including American titles. Most orders will arrive within 48 hours. We offer a sale or return service to any Church wishing to have a selection of books on display for Alpha courses, or for a regular bookstall. We are also able to offer books for conferences, Church away days and ladies' and men's groups.

If you would like any information about these services then do not hesitate to contact us.

Mission Statement
At the Southport Christian Book Centre we put Jesus at the centre of everything we do. We firmly believe that reading of Christian literature can and will enrich and encourage your faith. Christian books are essential in our spiritual journey to help us in our walk with our Lord and Saviour. We see our work as a ministry on the high street, a place where people can come and browse, enjoy the atmosphere and escape the hustle and bustle of the town centre. We are able to pray with people and be a listening ear to those who are having a bad day.


We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, it is his word and is all true. It is therefore a great privilege to be able to put Bibles into the hands of people.

SACREdplace Bookshop, St Austell (website snapshot 23/4/2017) From the shop's homepage:
The name SACREd stands for St Austell Christian Resources and Education. The Trust was formed in 2010 by Churches Together in St Austell to serve churches of all denominations in the town and the surrounding area with books and other Christian resources and to offer a pastoral and prayer ministry to all who request it, whatever their faith or background.

The Trustees of the Trust and the staff of SACREdplace, the Trust's base in St Austell town centre reflect the inter-denominational nature of Churches Together. We rejoice in the opportunity to get to know each other better, to put aside our differences and to serve our town together in the name of Jesus...
