‘How is business?’ is a question frequently asked by our customers. And our response is, ‘It’s tough but we are still here!’ These are challenging times for all booksellers and whilst the work continues to be hard, we are learning new and creative ways of working and are excited by the future.

External work
Over the last two years Cornerstone has developed important partnerships with denominational networks, Christian organisations, schools and local churches. Regular customers know only too well the sight of boxes piling up in the corner of our coffee shop waiting to be delivered, collected or taken out to conferences.

External work is becoming a crucial part of our business, as is the selling of Christian books through our local
churches Bookshop-in-a-Box scheme. Internal development With the decline of Christian bookshops across the North people are travelling further to shop with us. Our website plays a crucial role in making us known and customers tell us they still like to see before they buy. We are encouraged by this trend and have important plans for internal development in 2014:

 Expanding our best sellers i.e. Bibles
 Making biography and fiction titles more accessible to customers downstairs
 Developing an upstairs room into a brand new loan Resources Centre for opening in the Autumn.
 Recruiting more volunteers to join the coffee shop team

There are lots of opportunities to get involved at Cornerstone.

Do speak with us if you would like to know more about volunteering.

Pancakes and Poems at Thornton

Pancakes and Poems, what a great evening we had on 13th February (Shrove Tuesday), in aid of 2nd Mile Project.

People were invited to come along for tea/supper and enjoy a variety of pancakes both savoury and sweet.

The selection was most tempting with fillings such as chilli. chicken and avocado, mushroom or cheese and onion. The sweet fillings were too many to mention, but my favourite was fresh fruits with ice cream – yum, yum.

Throughout the evening, many people had brought poems to read to everyone. The genre of this was amazing with funny, romantic, knowledgeable and even a little bit naughty.

It was good to be together with laughter and smiles all round. A special thank you to everyone who came and all who helped.

Methodist Women in Britain

Ladies of the Bradford North Circuit, welcome to an introduction to MWiB!

Methodist Women in Britain is a movement within the Methodist Church, which seeks to resource individual women and women's groups in a variety of ways. It came into being in July 2011, formed through the coming together of Women's Network and other women's meetings within Methodism.

MWiB is more than a meeting. Many women may feel that it is not for them, because they do not already attend a women's meeting. The movement is there for ALL women in Methodism. There are opportunities for meetings within circuits, and at District and Connexional levels, which are all held on a regular basis.

MWiB seeks to offer a broader menu for women today. There are many opportunities to meet locally, nationally and internationally. Resources are available for individuals to use at home, at work or within their families.

MWiB is very active nationally; details of events can be found in the Methodist Recorder …
