You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. Matthew 22:37
"Cornerstone- An Oasis in the Town"
Click on the button to the left to read our article in the Together Magazine. It's an old article that beautifully shows the impact we aim to have in the community and the changes to the shop that Marian introduced. That ethos continues today as Caroline, our current manager, brings new direction to our little bookshop.
Cornerstone has been open since 1977 to serve Christians and the local community in and around Whitehaven and further afield. On this site you can see a selction of the books available. If you don't see a book listed that you would like to buy and collect from the Cornerstone bookshop, then don't hesitate to contact us by phone, email or by facebook and we'll order it in, ready to collect at no extra cost. Orders are often delivered the following working day.
Mon, Tues: 10am - 4pm
Wed: 10am - 1:30pm
Thur, Fri, Sat: 10am - 4pm
We are partnered directly with IVP, the Good Book Company and the Bible Society. We also have Lion Books, Candle and BRF promotions at least three times a year. These are excellent Christian publishers who help us greatly in our ministry, and we are very thankful for their work.
You can contact us and can orgainise for the bookshop to come to you! We are more than happy to come along to any event that you may have organised with a wide selection of our products. Or if you would like you can come and fill a box to run your own stall on Sundays, this would be on a completely sale or return basis.
Friends of Cornerstone
We are looking for people who feel called to support our ministry prayerfully & financially
Securing our future
The Bookshop had a dramatic overhaul in 2012 and is currently managed by Caroline Lowman. There is continued growth as Caroline and the Trustees have a vision for further positive changes they would like to make. These include the expansion of the bookstalls to reach more events, an over-hall of the stock management system, as well as securing further exciting stock.
We are inviting you to consider becoming one of the "Friends of Cornerstone" - one of our 1 in 100 supporters who could commit to giving £5.00 (or more) per month, and who will pray, to help us develop these plans. As a thank you, you would receive a quarterly newsletter keeping you up to date with all the Trust's news, and invitations to discounted events. If you are interested please email Caroline, or ring her to request a sign-up form, or to chat more about it.
