Book Aid is sad to announce our Warrington bookshop has closed after 10 years in the town.
We would like to thank all those who have donated and purchased books here over the years, which has helped to raise funds to support our overseas programme. Many shipping containers of Christian books and Bibles have been sent to Christian bookshops in Africa as a result.
The funds raised through the generosity of the owners Doug and Joy Wood, who so freely and willingly made the shop available to Book Aid, have made a difference across the world, as well as enabling people in the Warrington area to buy good quality secondhand books on their doorstep. Doug and Joy’s skill and knowledge of Christian literature meant that the stock was well suited to the needs of customers. It really has been a joy to work alongside them.
When they reluctantly stood down a couple of years ago Book Aid was thankful to firstly Pastor Stephen and then Ruth and Diane all of whom willingly gave their time and energy to keep the shop open on reduced opening hours for as long as possible.
Book Aid also wants to thank so many others who have given their time generously by volunteering in the shop over the years and we are sure that many people will be very disappointed now that the shop has closed.
We recently shared on our Facebok page that we were considering opening the London Bookshop on Saturdays. The responses we received were so positive that we have decided to open once a month in May, June and July before committing to opening on Saturdays more regularly.
These are the new Saturday opening times:
12th May 2018 – 10am – 3pm 16th June 2018 – 10am – 3pm 7th July 2018 – 10am – 3pm
Book Aid is very pleased to announce that plans are underway to reopen the Warrington Book Shop from October 2016. The shop will be managed by Pastor Stephen Holland and his team of volunteers. It will open on Mondays and Saturdays from 10-4. Stephen has spoken of his passion to see good Christian literature available on the UK high street.
Please pray that word will spread that Book Aid is opening again. We are thrilled that Joy and Doug Wood continue to make the premises available for the ministry which has played a significant part in raising funds to support Book Aid’s overseas ministry.
Book Aid is sad to have to announce the closure of their shop in Warrington. Joy and Doug Wood have run the shop since 2009 with the help of a committed team of volunteers, but as a result of recent health problems they are now unable to continue. Discussions are underway with other Christian retailers about the future of the Warrington building.
Book Aid has benefitted enormously from the commitment and knowledge of the Christian literature ministry Joy and Doug have brought to the Warrington shop during the last 8 years. As a book collecting point in the Merseyside area and as a retail shop raising funds to help send containers to our overseas partners their contribution has been significant. Their involvement will be sorely missed and we wish them every blessing for the future.
The Warrington Book Aid shop will close on 30 July 2016.
