The Plymouth Brethren Christian Church wants planning permission to open the shop at its Reading Gospel Hall on Church Lane.

The sect – which discourages social contact between members and non-members – says the move will bring its shop and gospel hall closer together. It also says all proceeds will be reinvested into its charity organisations.

The Berkshire branch of the Plymouth Brethren already runs one of the organisation’s Campus & Co members-only shops on Arkwright Road, on an industrial estate in the west of Reading.

Campus & Co shops serve as supermarkets for members of the Plymouth Brethren, and are closed to non-members.

Now the church wants to move the shop to its main compound in Shinfield, where its Gospel Hall is behind two security gates. A spokesperson for the Brethren told the Chronicle this would ‘bring our congregation’s local Gospel Hall and Campus & Co store close together.’

They said: “This will help local members to access the shop with greater ease while also reimagining an ancillary building adjacent to the existing Gospel Hall to ensure it best serves the community.”
