Nationwide Christian Trust have confirmed that they are in discussions over a possible rescue mission to save at least some of the remaining Wesley Owen stores.

Although no official announcement can be made at this stage, important meetings are taking place around the country with concerned parties in bookshops and local churches and the Trust would be grateful for all prayer support as they seek God’s will and the right way forward.

The Nationwide Christian Trust — based at Mulberry House in High Ongar, Essex — exists “to help people find The Lord and strengthen them in their spiritual lives through books, DVD’s, CD’s and Christian greeting cards” and aims to work in partnership with local churches throughout the UK, a combination which appears to make this rescue mission a natural relationship.

  1. We have to hope and pray for all concerned, including customers who sometimes get forgotten. A friend, a great reader, published writer, church worker and Book Agent, but who prefers bricks and mortar to Amazon et al, is quite depressed by the loss of two Christian bookshops in his area.
