Shop, foyer stalls, appointments, deliveries

Shop and foyer stalls

Doors wide open to the fresh air for good ventilation but every Sunday we spread out displays of goods in the church centre foyer between 10.15 and 11.45. Please also go into our small shop off the foyer if you’d like to see the rest of our stock. Come and see lots of new stock as well as your old favourites. Cash, cheques, cards and payments by mobile wallets are all accepted.

Shop open on Wednesdays 11.00 to 12.00. Please help us by wearing a mask when browsing in the shop. Thank you!

Coffee & Company is in the foyer on the first Friday of each month 10.00 to 12.00 with the shop open alongside. You can browse in the shop or enjoy coffee and cake in the foyer or, even better, do both.

Delivery Service

Free and contactless delivery service in Bedford and the immediate surrounding area. There is no minimum order. Order anything from the Traidcraft catalogue, from our Grocery list from our Real Bread list or anything you’ve seen in our shop or on this website. Need a physical copy of the Traidcraft catalogue and/or our price list for groceries and other essentials? Just ask via the contact details below. You can also browse the new Traidcraft Spring Catalogue 2022 online turning the pages just as you would with a paper catalogue https://www.traidcraftshop.co.uk/traidcraft-catalogue

To order: phone Brenda Mayoh our buyer and delivery service organiser on 01234 268574 and dictate your order or email your order to fairtrade@standrewsbedford.org Please give your name, address, telephone number and/or email address + as many details of the item as possible such as code (if there is one), name of item or a description, size if applicable, quantity and price.

Our volunteers deliver on foot or by bicycle or by car according to the size of your order and the distance involved. The volunteer will agree with you a suitable day and time to deliver.

Pay for your order by BACS or alternatively, with your agreement, we will email you an invoice and you will be able to pay safely and easily by credit or debit card via a link in the email. Smartphone users may prefer to opt to receive a payment link by text. If none of these are possible for you, don’t worry we’ll find a payment method to suit you.

Need to shop at a different time?

If our opening hours don’t suit your timetable why not make an appointment to come at a good time for you? Visit on your own or with your partner or a friend or two. The member of staff on duty will get on with some shop tasks outside in the foyer while you browse. When you are finished shopping go back into the foyer where you can pay by card, cash or cheque. Appointments are available by agreement on all days/evenings except Sundays. To make a booking phone Lynn Herron Shop Manager on 07897 782765 or email fairtrade@standrewsbedford.org
