St Martin's Bookshop

New Web Site Coming Soon

St Martin’s Bookshop is a charity bookshop staffed by volunteers in Bournemouth, England.
St Martin’s Trust is an ecumenical charity, founded in 1997 by a group of Christians who wanted to work together for the good of the local community. The funds raised from book sales are used to support local and other good causes including Michael House (a Bournemouth charity for the homeless) From the very beginning, St. Martin’s has been much more than a bookshop. It has been a place of meeting, of sharing and offering ‘tea and sympathy: it offers what has been described as a ‘ministry of the listening ear.’ Several of our friends suffer from dementia or are recovering from strokes; some of our volunteers have mental health and physical problems and they benefit from the companionship and encouragement that St. Martin’s offers through membership of our ‘St. Martin’s Friendship Club’.
