Christian Resources Leicester is a friendly and well-established Christian bookshop situated in the heart of Leicester City Centre next to Leicester Cathedral. Founded over 35 years ago and formerly an SPCK branch, the shop now forms an integral part of St Martins House, which is owned by the Diocese of Leicester. It is a building dedicated to hospitality, outreach and service including a growing Conference Centre business.
All surplus profits from the shop, after meeting the needs as a business, are ploughed back into the work of St Martins House and the Cathedral.
