‘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.

Come into God’s courts with praise Give thanks to God and praise God’s holy name.
The Lord is good God’s love endures for ever. Amen.
PrayerLord God, you made us, and we are yours, we are your people, the sheep of your pasture. As we focus on you this morning, and acknowledge that your presence makes the place in which we do this (wherever it is) a holy space, touch our hearts afresh with your love, that our lips may praise you and our lives serve you in all things. Amen.

You might like to sing, or reflect on the words of, Hymn StF 363, which begins, “My Jesus, my Saviour, Lord there is none like you. All of my days I want to praise the wonders of your mighty love”.

Read Romans 5:1-8First silently to yourself, then, if you can, out loud, from the Message Bible. I love the way…

Service sheet (pdf) Opening sentence:Those who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God...the Spirit makes you God’s children and by the Spirit’s power we cry out to God, ‘Abba, Father.
Song:Join in with or listen to ‘Sing of the Lord’s goodness’ (Singing the Faith 65) as we offer our praise to God. Alternatively, use a well-known hymn such as ‘Lord of all hopefulness’ (Singing the Faith 526, Hymns and Psalms 552) as we affirm the presence of God in our worship today.

Opening prayers:Creator God
We come to praise your name today,
We are confident of your love for us,

and faithful to your call,

may be shown to be well placed.
And encourage us to share in the work of Jesus
that the good news of your saving grace
may be a message of hope and rejoicing
for all creation.
