The Opportunity shop (Op shop for short) operates from a purpose built building on the church site at Torquay. It is co-ordinated by a manager and staffed by volunteers. The shop is well stocked with household items, clothes and books.
The shop performs several functions. Proceeds from sales make a valuable contribution to the church funds but just as importantly the shop has an important function in reaching out into the community. Many people come as much for company and a chat as to buy and our volunteers are happy to meet their needs as best they can.
The Parish Op Shop has now opened an Online Store
