Since 1st July 2009, The Archbishops' Council has been working with Anglican charity Hymns Ancient & Modern to publish liturgy, key reference titles and other resources for the Church. Under the agreement, the Council continues to publish a range of titles to support the ministry and mission of the Church under its Church House Publishing imprint, with Hymns Ancient & Modern (HA&M) acting as its production and marketing arm.

Trade support is now provided by Hymns Ancient and Modern through their distribution arm Norwich Books and Music. For trade enquiries and orders, please contact Norwich Books and Music on 01603 785 900 or

Permission to return sale or return/see-safe stock

Permission is not required to return stock ordered on a sale or return basis provided permission to make a sale or return order (for a bookstall, or other special event etc.) was obtained in advance. Permission is usually granted if sensible quantities are ordered.

Please contact the Norwich office for permission in the first instance, on 01603 785900 or

Damaged stock

Title pages of stock that is damaged in transit should be returned to Norwich Books and Music with the nature of the problem. Permission to return damaged stock is not required from the publisher.

Faulty stock

For books of £20 and under please send the title page, clearly marked with the reason (e.g.blankpages/missing section/creased folding/faulty binding) to the Sales Department at CHP for credit.

For books of £20 and over please contact us regarding the problem, as quite often we would like the complete copy to be returned for which postage will be credited. Our printers sometimes require this for us to claim the credit and for them to have the opportunity to the put matter right on the more expensive books.
