We maintained a regular presence on Thornbury Market between April and October since 2012, but in 2015 we were limited to the month of June only due to pressure on our Pastor’s time and a shortage of helpers. In 2016 and 2017, we ran the stall during July and August. In 2018, it was not possible to run the stall, but we did once again take part in the Thornbury Carnival (see picture, bottom)
The market itself is held all year round on the car park between Thornbury United Reformed Church and the St Mary’s Shopping Centre.
We offer a free Bible to anyone who asks, and we have a range of booklets on various evangelistic topics, and CDs of ministry, free of charge. We seek to speak to as many shoppers as possible, as well as building relationships with other stallholders.
