Bookshop and Film Club
The success of the internet has made it difficult for small independent bookshops to survive. Which is a shame as there’s nothing quite like browsing in a bookshop and making an unexpected discovery – something you can’t do so easily on the web.
But here at the Gospel Centre we have bucked the trend and opened small, not for profit, Christian bookstall. We have a passion to help people obtain Bibles, study books and good Christian reading material in general. Our purpose-built bookstall is called “Lighthouse Books” and we stock a wide range of quality study Bibles, foreign language Bibles, children’s books and Bibles, gifts, greeting cards, worship CDs, DVDs and a host of other interesting bits and pieces just waiting to be discovered! There’s also a “lending library” section for films and books and we can order in whatever it is you might be looking for.
In addition to our bookstall we also run a free monthly film club where we meet together on a Friday night at 7.30 to enjoy fellowship and watch a good movie together. Our next movie night is on 28th September Where we will be watching Paul, Apostle of Christ.
Starring Jim Caviezel, James Faulkner, Olivier Martinez, Joanne Whalley & John Lynch
Paul who goes from the most infamous persecutor of Christians to Christs most influential apostle, spends his last days awaiting execution by Emperor Nero in Rome. Paul is under the watchful eye of Mauritius, Mamertine Prisons ambitious prefect, who seeks to understand how this broken old man can pose such a threat. As Pauls days grow shorter, he feverishly works from prison to further the Gospel of Christ and embolden his followers to stand strong in their faith against Roman persecution far greater than has ever been seen.
