Part-time and full-time opportunities exist elsewhere too... Look here
As the our summer holiday season gets underway, many shops will be providing books for missions, holiday clubs and camps. Pray that God will use all of this material for His glory. Pray too for the shops and warehouse in general, when staffing is often tight over the summer as team members take holidays. Have you ever prayed about volunteering with CLC, by the way?
Two CLC Shops in Birmingham
Finally, after long delays, there will very soon be two CLC bookshops in the country’s #2 city. Pray for Neil MacLennan, the manager at the Carrs Lane shop, and his team as they work together in these days and coming weeks to establish the shop stock and systems, and as they promote the shop to the churches and Christians in the greater Birmingham area. Pray too for our original shop in Stephenson Street as it continues to serve the many passing customers who use the adjacent train station.
26-27 Sat/Sun. UK – HTB Focus 2014
This week CLC is again providing the bookshop for the Focus conference, run by Holy Trinity Church, Brompton. Pray for Geoff Bearham and team as they travel to the Sussex coast to set up, run and then take down the bookshop. Pray that in the hard work and tiredness there will be joy and satisfaction as they advise and serve the customers, and (hopefully) listen to some of the sessions and join in the vibrant worship.
28 Mon. Barbados – Library Orders
We are thankful to the Lord for giving us another opportunity to supply the local Public Library with an order of books. We really appreciate this sale in these difficult economic times. Please pray that the books would be a source of blessing to those using the Library.
29 Tue. Kenya – Partnerships
With changing economies and trends, we need a change of strategy to ensure our sustainability. We are asking the Lord to open doors for other Christian organisations to partner with us in ministry. We hope and pray that this will be a paradigm shift for us.
30 Wed. Netherlands – Registration Process
“We are currently in the process of registering the CLC Bookshops and Publishing as a separate entity from the charitable foundation. We appreciate your prayers in this, because it requires some careful decision-making and paperwork.” Bertus Keuter, Director.
31 Thu. USA – Launch of a New Title
“Pray for the successful launch, on August 5th, of a very important CLC publication entitled “Books that Change Lives”. It is being produced in conjunction with the Parable Group of Christian bookshops. It is a vital resource for anyone seeking to develop a Christian reading habit. It has recommendations on the best Christian books to read, as well as an extremely valuable topical resource guide.” Dave Almack, National Director.
