About Us

Vanpoulles Limited is a long established family business, founded in 1908 to supply the Church with all types of ecclesiastical requisites. We have over 100 years experience in supplying quality Church furnishings and supplies across all denominations.

We offer a very comprehensive range of products including Church consumables, such as candles, wine and wafers, a vast array of ecclesiastical textile items and metalware, woodwork items and statuary. The original 1908 Vanpoulles Bros. catalogue listed a range of clerical wear in 76 different product types which has been built upon over the years to an unequalled range of almost 7,000 designs of both textile and non-textile items, in both modern and traditional styles.

As well as our range of stock designs we also undertake many special commissions, from chasubles and frontals to metalware and woodwork items, including carved wood statues.

We endeavour to hold stocks of the majority of our most popular regular lines which enables us to offer a 'by-return' service, whenever possible, on a wide range of products.

Our sales department is available for friendly service, advice and the current stock availability of all our product lines. Our website provides a comprehensive guide to our range of products but we also produce a catalogue of our products and a separate Candles & Consumables brochure and these can both be downloaded electronically from this website or alternatively you can request a printed copy to be sent to you. We also produce a number of seasonal brochures, namely our annual January Sale catalogue, an Easter brochure and a Christmas brochure.

Vanpoulles also has a very close relationship with Slabbinck NV, of Bruges, Belgium and we are the sole UK distributor for their internationally acclaimed range of products. This range can be found in the Vanpoulles ‘Slabbinck’ Brochure, available on request.

We despatch items throughout the UK and world-wide and have considerable experience in export and welcome enquiries from around the globe.

We invite you to visit us at our showrooms in Crawley, West Sussex close to Gatwick Airport, where a large range of our goods is on display.

We at Vanpoulles aim to continue to provide our customers with the quality and personal service of a family business with over 100 years experience in serving the needs of the Christian community worldwide
