LST’s bookshop stocks a wide range of academic books, theological and otherwise, representing almost every area of Christian thought. Whilst our stock necessarily reflects the needs of our students, the shop is also open to conference guests and the general public who are encouraged to pay a visit.

The shop usually holds up to 2,000 titles. Items that are not in stock can be ordered, with many obtained within a couple of days.

Normal opening hours (term time)

Monday to Friday 10:30am to 4:30pm

Opening times outside of term time and latest news about the shop can always be found at the Maranatha Bookshop website.

The shop may be open at other times for special events. Please see our shop Facebook page (LST Bookshop) for details. Our Facebook page is also a good place to be kept informed about events and special offers.

If in any doubt, please phone 01923 456130 to check before visiting.

Thank you.
