THANK YOU

First of all we'd like to say a huge thank you to all our customers, friends, supporters and prayer partners for your part in keeping the Word on the street in Weston-super-Mare and area.

In September we went away for the annual Christian Resources Together Retreat at Swanwick and were amazed, after just four years in 'the trade', to come home with the runner up award  in the 'Independent Small Retail Store of the Year' category of the annual awards! This is thanks to God's great provision and also to all of you who support us here at Life. Thank you.

To see more of the award winning books and CD's and DVD's pop in and take a look at the display in store.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TEAR FUND BIG BAKE

We are looking forward to being part of the Tear Fund Big Bake (find out more by clicking the link) at Life during October.

On Saturday 17th October between 10am-12 noon and 2.30-3.30pm you are very welcome to come and join us for tea, coffee and home made cakes. All money raised will go to the Tear Fund Big Bake appeal to help vulnerable children in places like Cambodia, so please give as you are able, to help them to help the children.

IMPROVEMENTS

This past week has seen more improvements at Life as we have at last been able to renovate the outside toilet to a degree. Now much easier to access, down a small step rather than the massive one which was there, and freshly painted. Also the front and rear of the shop have been repainted. We have also been able to twin our toilet in Weston with a toilet in Nepal thanks to the Tear Fund Toilet Twinning project.

All of this was  accomplished entirely from donations made for cups of tea and coffee in the shop so thank you to all who have had a cuppa and donated!

Watch this space as we hope to have a Toilet Twinning party in the not too distant future at Life.

 
Meet The Author - Carole Sampson

Our next Meet The Author event is coming up fast!

On Saturday 8th August we have local author Carole Sampson joining us for the morning to launch her latest book 'Treading on Eggshells'. The usual coffee, tea and cake will be on offer, free of charge.

Treading On Eggshells

"A heartwarming novel of a girl growing up and making her way in th 1950's, 60's and 70's...

Judith always knew that she was adopted as a tiny baby. She has grown up as a member of the Harper Family and shared all their joys and sorrows.

She has learned when it is safe to be herself and when it is wiser to 'tread on eggshells'"

Carole weaves a lovely gentle story set in and around the Bristol area bringing reality and fiction together to produce a believable set of characters in down to earth places and dilemas.

A great summer read!

Priced at £6.99

The Walls Came Down!

As you may know the walls finally came down earlier this year and we now have a comfortable area at the back of the shop where people can meet and pray, talk, read, study the Bible and drink coffee or tea together.

Meet The Author!

Please come along on Saturday morning this week (25th April) as we have local author Wendy Reakes spending the morning with us as we launch her new book 'Saved' here at Life.

This is Wendy's story of how a fall, which for some could have felt like the end of life, was the beginning of her new life. Just when many might feel trapped she is free!

Wendy writes in a way that draws you easily into her world, you soon begin to feel you've known her all your life. I read Wendy's book last week in 2 days, I couldn't put it down!

So come along on Saturday and 'Meet the Author' and support your local author and bookshop all in one go!

We'll have the usual coffee and tea available and something for the children to do too.

 

 

 
Spring News & Easter Opening

The wall has come down!

If you have visited Life in the past few weeks you may have seen us in various 'states of repair' as the back wall has been taken down to allow more space for a permanent home for our extensive second hand book section, as well as space to sit and read, talk, pray or be creative or drink a complementary cup of coffee or tea.

We would like to thank all those who have helped to make this possible by their hard work, prayer and God given talents!

If you haven't been in yet please pop in and take a look at what's been happening.

In the past month or so 25 boxes of your second hand books have gone out through Book Aid to help people in Africa, Asia and the Carribbean who need good Christian books there. Also in the last few days some have gone to the Gambia. It's great to know that the books you have donated are helping people all over the world!

Over the past week we have had Easter themed activities available for children while their parents have time to browse. This seems to have been a great hit! We are sorry there are no photographs at this time as our camera has broken, but we hope to bring you some pictures in the near future.

Please take a note of our Easter opening times:

We will be closed on Good Friday 3rd April

Open on Saturday 4th April from 10am-4pm (closed for lunch 1-2pm)

Closed on Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th April

Reopening on Wednesday 8th April at 9am

Have a very happy, blessed Easter.
