Our Heritage

The Stanborough Press Ltd is the official publisher of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland, and it is owned by the British Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.

Globally, the Adventist Church retails a large portion of its literature and related products through Adventist Book Centre outlets, and those operating in the UK are run by The Stanborough Press.

The Adventist passion for the printing and distribution of uplifting Christian literature predates the official formation of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in 1863 by a full decade. In fact, the ‘publishing ministry’, as it became known, is regarded as the Church’s founding method of witness and it still plays a defining role in the outreach and nurture of our members.

Over the years, The Stanborough Press Ltd has changed its main emphasis from printing and publishing, to the publishing and distribution of Christian literature, both in the UK and abroad.

Our Vision

We lament the pain and suffering experienced by many in our world today.

We seek to alleviate those conditions by sharing the uplifting and transforming Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone, everywhere.

We seek to share the means to that more abundant life through our various publications on health, education, family life and faith.

We seek to be vendors of hope and good cheer, helping humanity find liberty and security, both in this life and in the one to come.

Our Mission

Through the publishing and distribution of uplifting Christian literature we aim to facilitate the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to people in every country of the world. We will support our Church with resources for outreach, children’s and educational books, parenting manuals, family health material, personal and spiritual development books and magazines, games and other appropriate resources.

Beyond this service to our members we aim to make available material suitable for the spiritual growth of seekers from all communities.

Our Values

We are a mission-based charitable organisation with a small but dedicated workforce, which aims to maintain the highest standards of service as we carry out God’s work.

We aim to produce and distribute resources that reflect Christ, build value in people, inspire hope and change people’s lives for the better.

We aim, at all times, to conduct our business with honour, integrity and cultural sensitivity.

Our Means

We commit to using the means of The Stanborough Press Ltd to develop, produce and distribute books, periodicals, electronic media, and any other products that will introduce people to Jesus and affirm the Seventh-day Adventist faith. We envision the Holy Spirit inspiring every believer to share these materials and help others prepare for eternity.
