We have 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, we ran the stall during July and August, and in 2017 we are doing the same.
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.
We aim to operate between 9.30am and 2.30pm, but we are usually in place by 9am.
