Book of the Month



Book of the Month

Jonah and the Bony-Finned Asteroid Fish Jonah son of Amittai, one-time prophet to royalty, now semi-retired, is running away. Too many message-bots have been calling at his door, with too many unsettling messages from God, and Jonah is heading for the spaceport of Joppa, Planetary Gateway to the stars, to book himself a long holiday

A retelling of the story of Jonah set in the future. Suitable for older children and adults this would make a good Christmas present. Published by the Bible Society £5.99

Newsletter - October 2020

The shop is currently open Monday to Friday from 10am to 1pm. Business is starting to pick up again. Should there be any future changes we will send out an email to those on our database and also put details on our website.

CHRISTMAS - Yes, we know you probably don’t want to be thinking about that yet! However, at the time of writing the future situation is still uncertain and we are seeing further lockdowns in other parts of the country. Customers are already asking for Christmas cards and gifts in case they are not able to get out to buy them later in the year. We have therefore taken the decision to start putting our Christmas stock out earlier than usual.We are the only shop in the area where you can find a good range of cards with the real Christmas message!

COFFEE SHOP - Unfortunately, we do not have enough space to open up for coffees at this time. Please be assured we are constantly monitoring the situation.

MAIL ORDER - Don’t forget our mail order service!

Volunteers Needed

The shop is currently open Monday to Friday from 10am to 1pm, and also Saturday mornings during August.

Wordwise has always been about supporting local Christians, so it is your shop and not ours! We need your help to keep us going.

A number of our regular volunteers are still self-isolating so we are currently unable to open in the afternoons, and are struggling to find enough people even to cover the mornings.

So, we are asking local Christians, “do you want your shop to stay open?”

Would you be available to help? The minimum requirement is only 3 hours a week. You will have someone to work with you and show you the ropes. Operating the till is not as daunting as it sounds, and training will be given. A very large part of our ministry is just talking to customers as they come into the shop.

Please do get in touch for more information - 01548 856571
