A bit of History
In 1973 Robert Kilpatrick, the first UK GLO mission worker, had the vision of holding a Christmas bookstall for a month in an empty shop in nearby Hamilton. In those days there was no Christian bookshop anywhere in the whole of Lanarkshire. Sales were so encouraging that a lease was signed on the property for a permanent bookshop.

In 1974, an unused large church and ancillary buildings in Motherwell became available for development as the UK headquarters of GLO and to house the mission administration offices, college and bookshop. As a result the bookshop moved to its present location in the centre of Motherwell. Subsequently a coffee shop and 350-seater auditorium have been developed.

Since 1974 the bookshop turnover has grown steadily necessitating several refits and extensions, the most recent in 2000 when an additional 30% of retailing area was created and the whole shop tastefully refurbished. In 2002, the bookshop won the prestigious 'Christian Booksellers Association Large Bookshop of the Year' Award - and we can't resist showing you the picture of former manager Geoff Ruston with Marion Mathers & Helen Dempsey!

We continue a process of improvement, constantly looking for new ways to help you spread the Good News of Jesus Christ in a relevant and challenging way. We appreciate your visit to our website and we would love to welcome you to the bookshop! Each week new books come in, new music & resources arrive, new special offers become available and you will often meet old friends browsing around.

Over the years, the shop has acquired a reputation for friendly and efficient service. Our wide range of stock and product (we hope!) justifies our 'tag-line' as
