ST PAUL’S BOOKSHOP, HINSLEY HALL: It seems impossible that Advent will soon be upon us, but it will soon be that time of year again. St Paul’s at Hinsley Hall is, as usual, carrying a full range of Advent candles, (including hand held candles and drip shields for use at Carol Services etc.) and also a good selection of devotional books for Advent and Christmas. We also have a nice selection of religiously themed Christmas cards, which it can be hard to find on the high street. Do call in and see us, whether you are a returning customer or a new one. We will be happy to help with your Advent and Christmas needs. If you wish to discuss your requirements, do contact us on 0113 275 4043 or by email at hinsleyhall@stpauls.org.uk
