Pilgrims ProgressPilgrim's Progress

John Bunyan could be said to have authored the most influential book in the English Language (other than the King James Bible) but The Pilgrims Progress is so much more than an historic novel.

Bunyan's plan for his readers is for them to travel through this book as an adventure through the Christian life - retold on paper and in pictures. The story of Christian and his companions has been a favourite for generations. John Bunyan's imaginative text brings out the same, practical, necessary lessons that everyone needs to know - both today and yesterday.

Additional features and study sections have been included to help today's generation to understand the book. These will help you to get behind some of the characters and places that Bunyan describes. you will also learn about Bunyan himself through a "life summary" and get some ideas on how to use this book. A small number of archaic words have been changed to modern equivalents and there is a dictionary and footnotes to provide additional help.

The Land Jesus Knew

Trace the footsteps of Jesus from the bustle of Bethlehem to the quiet garden tomb to the road outside Emmaus where two friends heard God's story from God himself.

This inspirational journey through the hills, the dust, and the homes of the Holy Land invites you to see, with new eyes, God's heart for his people and his deep love for you.

With beautiful photographs and questions for reflection, In the Footsteps of the Saviour is a travelogue for the soul through Nazareth, Galilee, Bethany, Jerusalem, and more. As Max weaves together insights from his own travels to Israel with inspirational teaching from his bestselling books, he guides through three distinct aspects of Jesus' life: his arrival, his ministry on earth, and his death and resurrection.

  Stories from the StreetsStories

Would you volunteer to walk the streets of your town or city late on a Saturday night? 

Founded in 2003 to respond to critical social issues, more than 12,000 volunteers have now been trained to serve as Street Pastors, not only on the streets but in many other public spheres as well. 

This book, with incredible and in some cases life-saving stories, celebrates their work, which has been credited with saving police and NHS time and money, reducing crime and improving neighbourhoods, and dispels the myth that the Church is not relevant today.

Confirmation & Weddings

We Have plenty of cards for all occasions, including confirmation and weddings

Beyond ConfirmationBeyond Confirmation

Baptism and Confirmation are both new beginnings in the Christian journey, but while baptism is more like birth, confirmation is more like graduation from college. And like graduation , confirmation is best seen as a beginning of a new chapter of life, rather than an end.

This book takes a look at the next steps after confirmation, and how we can ensure that we continue to grow as Christians in the months and years to come. It covers areas such as knowing God, what it means to be disciples, being part of the "body of Christ" (the church), sharing our faith with others, and living as Christians in our local community.

Knowing God       Knowing God Through the Year


" How can we turn our knowledge about God into knowledge of God? The rule for doing so is simple but demanding. It is that we turn each truth that we learn about God into matter for meditation before God, leading to prayer and praise to God.

Knowing God is a more complex business than knowing another person. If we spend the rest of our lives at it, there will still be more to comprehend. But the marvel of it is that God's riches are opened up to us to explore."        J.I.Packer
