Print Collection

The Congregational Library holds over 50,000 books, pamphlets and periodicals concerned with Congregationalism, Puritanism and Dissent in general. Congregational Library holdings can be made available in our temporary reading room at Trinity Congregational Chapel.

The online catalogue of printed books includes: all books printed before 1801, all books acquired by the Congregational Library from 1998 onwards, and its entire collection of hymns and sacred music – the most wide-ranging and ecumenical part of its holdings.
