The shop also aims to serve the wider Church community by providing a range of specifically Christian goods such as rosaries, crosses and specialist cards (e.g. Baptism, Ordination). Parishes may purchase candles, communion wine and wafers.

The Cathedral Shop has a good selection of local books on the history of Southwell and the surrounding villages and the gifts include Nottingham Lace, local pottery, Nottingham knitted and hand finished scarves. There is a selection of ethically traded gifts from around the world. Many of the gifts are associated with the carvings and decoration in the Minster including oak leaves, flowers and mice. 

The links to the Minster continue in our range of choral and organ CDs, hymn books and musical gifts which draw on the musical heritage the building provides.

The Cathedral Shop is situated on Church Street and staffed by customer service volunteers.
