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.

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.

Life Goes On!

After three and a half years we are excited to be able to announce that Life will go on at 13 The Centre.

Last week on Wednesday 3rd December we completed the purchase of the whole building to secure the future of a Christian witness and resources for the Church family in this region.

We have been pleased to be serving a ever increasing area, as people are seeking out a Christian bookshop to be able to pass on God's story to their friends and relatives...and sometimes total strangers!

This has been achieved with money provided by God as a direct result of prayer. Our God is an awesome God!

As well as thanking God we want to thank all who have supported us this far in prayer and in custom as well as our previous landlords at Mullers for all their encouragement and support over these past few years.

We would also like to thank All Signs & Designs for the gift of lovely new shop signs which you may have noticed in the past couple of weeks!

We look forward to continuing to serve you in the coming years.

Christmas Opening Times

We will be open as usual until 1pm on Christmas Eve and then closed over the Chrismas holiday. We will re-open at 9am on Friday 2nd January 2015

A very blessed and happy Christmas and peaceful New Year to all.

It is 3 years since ‘LIFE’ first opened the door. We have been blessed indeed. It has always been more than a book shop in this newsletter we give an outline of LIFE@LIFE.

Answers to Prayer! Over the last few years the building we are in has been rented but the Landlord has wanted to sell which would force us to move with significant impact to customer’s both local and from afar. However due to God prompted generosity from others, we have been able to commence the legal process to acquire the whole building.

Please join us in thanking God for his blessing and please pray for the continued day to day provision for running costs and family. Thank you for your wonderful support.

Gifts galore: New in this year a wide range of gifts including kitchenware and timber sculpture each conveys a positive message, for friend or family. A wide range of cards and CD’s etc. to give you something for different tastes.

More than a bookshop: We have had the privilege to spend time in conversations and tears; with people healed, wanderers returned home. Bent over and crippled, bitter and in pain, now straightened, refreshed, joining in local fellowship and sharing their joy of new life. Through Christ people have been encouraged including the addicted and emotionally disturbed, we have seen anger turn to peace and fear to hope. The sofas are a prayer space, even when the shop is busy people stop and pray and strangers become friends. Please come and join the conversation.

NEW Children’s books: A great new wider range is here in a dedicated area, please come and see for yourself, bring your children or your grandchildren see the new selection of Bibles and stories colouring books and games. and meet Lenny the lion.

Open events: Are opportunities to welcome everyone. One man came in, loud and abrasive but left at peace, thanked everyone for welcoming him. He found a home for a day, where he could share some of his story and be prayed for. Call us if you want to hold an event at LIFE.

Saturday 'Live @ Life'
Written by Lydia   
Saturday, 21 June 2014 14:54

We have been enjoying a day of live music at Life today (Saturday 21st June 2014).

It has been wonderful to sing praise to our great God along with Tim Bruce and his very talented family, among friends and visitors. It has been a privilege to  pray with and for some of those who are visiting the town on this very busy day.

We'd like to say a big thank you to Tim and thoroughly recommend his CD 'Find Your Voice', which is aimed at allowing the listener to fill in the words to worship God in their own way.

Look out for the next 'Saturday Live @ Life' in the near future, watch this space and our facebook page for more details.
