Telephone – (02) 6628 8777                                                   Monday to Friday,  9.00 am to 3.00 pm.

The shop is well-known in the wider community for its friendly welcoming atmosphere, excellent customer service, as well as presentation of stock, and very affordable clothing, furniture, bric-a-brac and other home wares.  Items for re-sale are donated not only from parishioners, but from members of Alstonville and adjoining communities.

As well as upholding the Ethos of the Christian Faith and the Anglican Church in Australia, the shop supports, promotes and encourages a culture founded on the principles of the Parish Mission and Goal Statements. It is an intrinsic ministry of the Parish providing material support for the underprivileged, and a place where people’s lives are touched by God through the faith of the volunteers. The shop is often used by many as a ‘drop in centre’ where people just come to chat.

The shop coordinates with other agencies such as St Vincent De Paul, Social Justice Group, Mental Health Support Group, Namatjira Haven, Hope Haven in providing assistance as required in the community.

All Op Shop staff are volunteers.  They come from varied backgrounds, and all enjoy the love, support and friendship offered.
