Do you have a catalogue?
We do not provide a physical catalogue in order for us to cut down on our paper usage and avoid circulating prices that are out of date, keeping our catalogue strictly online.
In some cases it is possible for us to produce a small brochure of selected products with reference numbers so that you may ring up for an up-to-date price and we can also provide example photographs of products via email if we have been asked to make specific recommendations.
You may print out pages of our website to use as a physical copy of our online catalogue if required.
We do not stock silver items, however we are able to provide a quote for any items to be made in silver. Please contact us for more information.
We have thorough information on how best to care for communion ware here.
Yes. We have recently started stocking altar breads that have been approved by the Coeliac Society UK. All information on these wafers can be found on the product description page found here
Different quantities and sizes of gluten free wafers are also available.
In some cases. If you purchased the item from ourselves we will usually offer to have it refurbished free of charge if the damage or wear has occurred within 2 years of purchase.
If any goods you have purchased need to be refurbished or if you believe your item is faulty please see our full returns policy and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inform us of the fault.
We will query any damage that appears to have come from misuse and any subsequent refurbishments will incur a fee.
Engravings are quoted on a case by case basis taking into consideration the piece to be engraved and the number of characters you require. Some items are not possible to engrave as they are too small or there is no suitable place for engraving.
If you specify a font and the placement of the text, we will endeavour to meet your requirements as closely as possible.
On occasions that the engraving will not fit in the requested space we may suggest an alternative.
If you need any help deciding the placement and layout we will endeavor to make a suitable recommendation and send a draft for approval.
No. In most cases all of the items found in our sets are listed individually, however if you would like a communion set modified or would like to buy a single item from a set that you cannot find available separately on our store, let us know and we will do our best to arrange a quote for you.
If you have communion items that you believe are in a fit condition for resale we may offer you a price for sale or return.

If you merely need somewhere to store your communion wafers once opened, we offer a glass storage jar that will suit your needs.
We have a category dedicated to Ordination and In Memoriam gifts which may provide some inspiration and we also sell sterling silver cufflinks which may serve as a beautiful gift for any occasion.
