Book Aid has reopened its doors in Warrington after a two-month break, following closure through the ill-health of the previous manager, Joy Wood.
‘We are delighted Pastor Stephen Holland of Westhoughton Evangelical Church and his team have offered to take on the running of the shop on a voluntary basis’, said Christine Pulsford, interim director.
She added, ‘So many people have told us how much they valued the shop. Mr Holland was moved to action when he heard of the need’.
Book Aid specialises in second-hand Christian books. The Warrington shop has three floors of books at affordable prices, with good Bible study material and a Banner of Truth section.
The shop receives donated Christian books and Bibles from around the UK. Some are sold to raise funds to support the ministry of Book Aid, which is to supply good Christian literature to places around the world in need. Over the past 29 years more than 320 containers of books have been sent to Africa, India, Asia and the Caribbean, to support Christian bookshops.
