The Op Shop is Open Mon-Sat 10am-4pm.
All proceeds go to support our work in the Community.
The Op shop has been part of the Denton Holme community for over 25 years. Initially opened purely to raise funds for the building of the Parish Centre, and subsequently so that as a church we have been able to employ various staff members, it has over the last 15 years or so become so much more. There is currently three-fold purpose to the Op Shop:
- It raises much needed funds. This has always been a core purpose of the Op Shop, but the funds it raises have moved from supporting one area of Church life to more community centred. Now the funds help enable us to achieve all that we are working towards in supporting the community.
- It supports the community directly. All the goods that you donate go back into the community. Whereas the primary target of selling goods enables those who might be struggling to buy decent clothes and items for the house, we also work with and support a number of “dealers” who come in and buy a variety of items, that they feel they may be able to buy cheaply and sell elsewhere as a profit. This provides an income or job for more local people.
- The Op Shop also provides a place where people belong, can find a friendly, familiar face and be signposted on to where they can get help if needed. The Op Shop meets many people who might visit both the Shop and Cornerstone, but it also has it’s own “regulars” who find it an important part of their community and daily life.
