Delivery & Returns Policy

We aim to dispatch in stock items within 1–2 working days on receipt of payment. If any items are out of stock we will inform you of the expected delay. For made to order items please allow 6-8 weeks before dispatch.

Please note that the above timescales are approximate and thus subject to change at the discretion of the retailer.

For UK or international delivery, we typically use UPS, and also DHL, DPD, FedEx and Royal Mail. Packages can be left in a nominated safe place if specified when ordering although this is at your own risk. Please avoid using a PO Box address, as many couriers are unable to deliver to these.

When ordering outside of the UK, orders may be subject to local customs fees that are out of our control.

For orders to the US, shipping directly to a church and providing your churches Tax ID number may help to avoid these fees. After placing your order, please contact us with your churches details so that we can add these to the shipping documents.

Please contact us to ensure availability of goods at time of order.
