About Us




Pat and Melissa opened Two By Two in Whitstable, a small seaside town, on the 20th September 2008, after many months of planning.

Situated just before the traffic lights as you enter into Whitstable, we offer a wide range of Christian books and gifts including weddings, christenings, birthdays as well as a variety of seasonal gifts. Children can colour and play in our colouring corner, we serve hot and cold refreshments, and have an area where you can sit and relax.

Both Pat and Melissa have been residents in Whitstable for many years. Melissa was born in the town and trained as a nurse before returning home to Whitstable and realising a dream of opening a Christian shop. Pat has lived in Whitstable for twenty-five years, and has been active in the local church and community during that time in various ways including as a local Lolipop Lady. She also had a life long dream of combining owning a shop with her Christian values. Both Pat and Melissa attend local churches; Pat goes to St Alphege Church and Melissa goes to Hamilton Road Evangelical Church.

We both previously worked in retail and in the community. We both felt that we were called to open a Christian Bookshop in Whitstable. We met about 9 months ago through various contacts, and realised that we both had similar ideas. We felt it was right and believe that God was at the centre of it all as everything has worked out well. God has already provided us with Annabelle, a willing volunteer and a great asset to this shop.

We decided to open in Whitstable because both being local, we felt there was a need for this service.

Our Mision Statement
"To enable Gods Word to spread to others in the wider community. To provide material to learn and study Gods Word. A place to be at peace. To be a witness and outreach to others so that they too can know Gods love and share in His Word."
