“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. He will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace…” (Isaiah ch.9 v.6 NIV)
How marvellous it is to be able to proclaim the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus, in our homes and to our family, friends and neighbours. If you need a few extra cards, or are still looking for a gift, diary or calendar, some are still available. Do come and look. It’s such a good way of spreading the Lord’s ‘Good News’ at this wonderful time of year – and at the same time supporting New Creation and various other Christian charities.
Although we are in an electronic age a Bible or a book is still a good choice. We have all kinds: for amusement, encouragement and teaching. Looking for that last minute stocking filler? We have a wide range of small items suitable for children of all ages, and we are here to help you. Remember, most of our stock carries a Christian text, message or symbol.
Good News from Traidcraft
We have just received an email from Traidcraft telling us that they will not now be closing down at the end of the year. They will continue to trade, but with a slimmed down range of goods. They will be dropping the loss making items and concentrating on their core business, mainly food with less crafts. If you would like to read about it, follow the link to their November Bulletin at: https://issuu.com/traidcraftshop/docs/nov_digital_bulletin_p5_issuu-v3/2
We are not the only ones God is blessing – PTL!
Prayers for the future
Our dream is that all the Christians, Churches and Chapels in Tiverton and the surrounding area would get behind this mission and own it and support it as part of their work for the Lord.
Our vision is to see a thriving Christian outlet in the town centre where anyone can come in, be refreshed and refuelled and where joy and peace and love are offered and shared by all!
The future is in God’s hands. We have no news yet about the new hoped-for premises as it is still undergoing renovations. Please pray that the lease, when available, will be favourable and we can sign it.
