St Olav's Church is the oldest building in Chichester still in use, and as such predates the city's Cathedral. Built in around 1050, with an extension added in the 13th century, the building is still a consecrated church and holds an annual Eucharist service on St Olav's Day (29thJuly).

The church was converted into a Christian Bookshop in the 1950's, spent many years as an SPCK shop before finally ended up in its present form. The shop is owned by the St Olav's Trust, a registered charity made up of representatives from local churches, including the Cathedral, the Baptists, Free and Independent churches as well as individuals from various different Church of England congregations. The ethos of the shop is that we should be open and available to all, and so the stock does not only cover all traditions within the Church of England but is also ecumenical.

We are proud of the fact that in June 2014 we were named the Winner of the Independent Small Retailer of the Year by Christian Resources Together...
