What can we offer?

Our shelves are stocked with books and educational materials, as well as music, CDs, DVDs, gifts for all occasions and teaching resources. Our principle lines include Christian books, Bibles, devotional guides and study manuals, with many Christian biographies and theological works.

We can also offer Churches the opportunity to run their own bookstalls and will supply books on sale or return which can be renewed, as required, on a regular basis. Ministers & Church leaders can request a ‘Resource Box’ to review a number of books in the comfort of their own study before making a purchase.

We have many tales and stories of ups and downs and surprising Holy Spirit provision of 40+ years of Christian Bookselling. We’d love to come and tell you about at at your church or event.
