About Us

As 'Scotland's Leading Independent Christian Resource Centre' we stock a wide range of products in our shop in Motherwell. In addition to our 'core' stock ranges, we run a series of special promotions for different times of the year, and for new product ranges.


Our staff are knowledgeable & friendly, and we will always do our best to answer any question you might have! This is an opportunity to say 'Thank you' as well to the volunteer staff, who give up their time to help maintain the excellent standard of customer service we strive to achieve.


There is a wide range of customers catered for, and you can see here the well stocked Study section, with a superb range of theological books, commentaries and resources. On our children's section there is a huge amount of fun to be had by kids of all ages with books, music, DVD, teachers resources, toys, gifts, puzzles, Sunday school lessons, puppets and much, much more!


Over the years we have a run a series of special events and author presentations, so rather than just tell you about them, we thought you would like to see some of the photos we have taken! Watch out- you might see yourself (or someone you know!) in these pictures!


From our 'History' pages, you will know we've been around for a few years! Our last big refit was in 2000, when the sales area was increased by 30% and many new ranges brought in. To mark this event, a special thanksgiving service was held with special guests Ian White & Jamie Stuart. We continue to be thankful to God for all He has done through the Bookshop, and the many friends we have made from all over the world!

Over the years, we have welcomed many authors to the Bookshop to take presentations. Adrian Plass is just one of the authors who have come- you will find more images & names below. True to his reputation, this was a highly enjoyable, laughter-filled session as Adrian read from a selection of his books. Depending on the author's schedule, we arrange these at various times- sometimes a lunchtime session such as we had with Adrian, to afternoon sessions like the one we shared with Sally Magnusson, promoting her recent book 'Glorious Things', to evenings like our recent event with Ian Shaw discussing the important issues raises in his book 'The Divine Substitute'. 
 The usual format is an introduction and then an opportunity for the author to share something about the book and the reasons they wrote it. Often there are questions to ask and always there is a supper, or tea & coffee, or (as when we hosted the local launch of the Holman Christian Standard Bible!) a cream tea with scones & strawberries. That was definitely the best!


Some of these books reflect deep personal trauma, and the presentations are sobering. They make you truly grateful for the blessings God has given us, and thankful for the grace God has given to those who have experienced deep trouble. Yet they have been given strength to rise above their hurt, and to share their sense of healing and new purpose with others. The visit of Heather Gemmen and Gail Chamberlain were two such events. Their stories were inspiring and challenging but I won't tell you about them here you can find out more about their books on our website!


We also have the privilege of taking Bookstalls out for the day! At a recent event at Jordanhill College, not only did we have an excellent bookstall, but this was combined with a book launch for Darrell Cosden's book 'the Heavenly Good of Earthly Work'. And we meet some interesting people- Mark Greene ('Thank God it's Monday') just happened to be the keynote speaker, so called in to add his congratulations to Darrell. If you are doing a special event, and would like a Bookstall to be provided, please contact us & we can discuss the various possibilities.


Outreach & evangelism are themes that lie very close to our heart as an organization, so it was a real privilege to be able to welcome Rico Tice to the Bookshop. Rico is author of the popular 'Christianity Explored' course, and shared something of the motivation and method of this course that has been widely used to bring others to Christ. We carry a wide range of resources and literature that can be used in the exciting work of sharing the Good News, and would encourage you to call in or contact us to discuss how we can partner in bringing the message of salvation to a needy world.


Well we're really just name-dropping now but no photo gallery would be complete without this photo of Jim McKay, one of our hard-working volunteers, meeting Jim Cymbala at the Brooklyn Tabernacle with Anne, Jim's wife. If you can't get them to come to Motherwell, we just have to go and get them! Andrew & Helen are pictured meeting Karen Kingsbury at the Christian Booksellers Convention. Karen is one of our most popular authors, writing high quality fiction from a Christian standpoint.


We couldn't resist including Bob & Larry, visiting the GLO Centre in November 2006. Children are always a priority in the GLO Bookshop, and the kids have got their own separate section where the kids can browse and the mums & dads can get some peace to look around! That said, the day that Bob & Larry arrived, you could hardly get into the kids section for the Big Kids wanting to be photographed with the cuddly vegetables. You're as young as you feel!
