Life Is One Year Old!

It's hard to believe we are fast approaching our first birthday on August 15th! With this in mind we are planning a week long Thanksgiving celebration from September 17th-22nd. God has been so good and we want to give Him all the praise!

During August we are introducing some 'Messy Mornings' especially for our younger customers and their families. These will be times when there will be special activities available for the children while the adults can browse or have a free cup of tea or coffee and a chat for a while. These dates will be;

  • Friday 3rd August from 10.30am-12 noon
  • Thursday 9th August from 10.30am-12 noon
  • Wednesday 15th August from 10.30am-12 noon
  • Tuesday 28th August from 10.30am-12noon

There may be a small charge for some of the activities.

 

Prayer

Our next 'Life Support' prayer evening will be at 7.30pm on Thursday August 30th, when we will again be praying for our town and surrounding areas. Please come along and join us if you would like to be a part of this.

 

Website Updates

As we write this news update we are also working on bringing our photo gallery up to date. So watch this space! If you can't wait that long then please take a look at us via Facebook which is updated more frequently!

As always we'd like to say a massive THANK YOU to all our customers, volunteers, our wonderful landlords and most importantly our amazing God!

MAY 2012 NEWS

First of all a BIG THANK YOU to all who support us already at ‘Life’, whether by prayer, ordering/buying books, cards etc, by donating second hand books and CD’s etc, by volunteering in the shop, or just visiting and enjoying a cup of tea or coffee with us. Most of all we thank God for what He is doing here in Weston.

It has been an amazing journey so far! It is hard to believe that just 9 months ago we opened the shop with nothing more than a few donated second hand books and the conviction that God wanted us to put our feet where our faith was. Now we have a fully stocked shop, and all this in a time when large, established, Christian bookshop chains have disappeared from our towns and cities. They will be, and are sadly missed by many.

 

Our aim is to make the word of God available ‘on the High Street’. We want anyone who is searching for answers to life’s questions to be able to find the One who knows all things, whether by reading the verse of the day from the open Bible in the window, or coming in and joining us as we read a chapter of the Bible, pray or have our daily devotional or by sharing something as basic as a cup of tea and a listening ear for a few minutes.

 

We also want to be able to help you to reach friends, family and those outside of our churches with the life changing word of God in an accessible way, by providing inspiring books, DVD’s, CD’s, daily reading notes, greetings cards and even art and T shirts!

DATES FOR YOUR DIARY

We are working in conjunction with Weston-super-Prayer & Praise to hold a ‘Life support’ prayer meeting, for our town and area, in the shop every other month in between the Weston-super-Prayer dates. The next of these will be on Thursday 28th June at 7.30pm.

In May we held a coffee morning in support of Chat (Chaplaincy About Town). Thank you to all who came to that event. Our next Coffee Morning on Friday 22nd June from 10am-12 noon will be in support of  Weston Foodbank. We’d love to see lots of people there to support this great cause. Also we have a box at the shop where you can donate non-perishable foods for Foodbank. Please could you announce these dates within your church notices?

 

NEW POSTER

If you have received our latest news update by post you should have also received a new poster telling you our opening times and some of what’s available at Life. We would be grateful if you could put this up at your church. If you have not received a poster and would like one for your church please contact us via the website and we will send one out.

 

There are still people who can’t or don’t want to use the internet and appreciate the advantages of dealing with real people face to face and handling real books!

 

At the moment we have a massive 3 for 2 event on children and young people’s books so if you will be looking for prizes for your Sunday school/children’s work now is a good time to look!

 

If you haven’t been in to Life already then please do pop in and take a look for yourself, you may even be surprised to find that many of our suppliers will now price match internet alternatives.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Andrew, Lydia and Rob

We have palm crosses here to remind us of the journey Jesus took into Jerusalem. We have Bibles that tell the story, books that tell of other peoples journeys of faith. Amazing stories but most amazing, is God's amazing Grace.


We are very blessed !

Life – Review of 2011

Life opened the door for the very first time on August 15th 2011. We began with nothing except a conviction that our town needed to keep a Christian presence in the ‘High street’ and that God would supply all our needs. With the help of the George Muller foundation (who own the building) and some second hand books, we put our feet where our faith was. Since then our wonderful Lord and the Christian community in Weston and the surrounding areas have overwhelmed us with their love, prayers and gifts. Thank you all!

As we look around the shop now, at the well stocked shelves, it’s amazing to see how God has provided! We have loved seeing people meet here with old friends and new. The shop has been used for prayer, pastoral meetings, Churches

together, Family Craft sessions, children’s story time, a Macmillan coffee morning, a Harvest food collection for local charities; Somewhere to go and Food Bank, WWJD planning (Weston Worship Jam Dates) and as ticket agent for a Hudson Taylors concert.

We have made countless cups of tea and coffee and have been privileged to pray with old and new friends and family in Christ. Another highlight was the day, not long after we first opened, when an entire church from Bristol visited us on their way to the beach!

If you haven’t visited us yet please pop in we’d love to meet you! If you’re from a church out of town and you would like us to come to your church or group please ring and we’ll arrange a convenient time to visit, either to talk or to bring a ‘Life on the Road’ Box of books cards etc. If you find it hard to get out we can take your orders by phone or email or even post and with our extensive range of second hand books even if what you’re looking for is out of print there’s a good chance we can find it for you!  We are happy (for a small charge to cover postage) to send goods to you by post and have customers from Cheddar, Bristol, Portishead and even as far away as Yorkshire who we have served in this way.

Lent  Reading

We are currently ordering books for Lent and Easter if your church or House/Cell Group will be looking for Lent courses/books please come in or get in touch to find out more. Let us know what you are looking for.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Lydia, Andrew and Rob
