Introducing Churchmarketplace
for the Church, by the Church

 What is Churchmarketplace?

Created by the Catholic Church in England and Wales in December 2010, Churchmarketplace is a cost saving purchasing initiative that leverages the purchasing power of the Church to negotiate highly competitive prices and discounts on a wide range of products and services on behalf of its members.

Why was Churchmarketplace created?

Churchmarketplace was created by the Church in response to a need expressed nationally by Dioceses and their Bishops to help members of the Catholic community to work together to reduce costs.

At the heart of the Churchmarketplace mission are the principles of solidarity and subsidiarity. Our belief is that by working together, we can save together, with the benefits being shared by all.

So, whether you are a large Academy or a small, country parish, everyone benefits from our range of competitively priced products and services.
