Christian Superstore – 102 Stafford Street:
Thank you for all of your support and encouragement over the year. From us here at the Christian Superstore Timaru, may the Lord bless you greatly over the year ahead. That this Christmas season of remembrance of Christ’s birth encourages and reminds us of such a love that can never be fully understood.

The year has almost come to an end and we eagerly anticipate the 2018 year. Please pray with us that God’s Word continues to reach out into the community. That God’s Word offers a hope and a healing love for those who seek Him.

At the Superstore we eagerly anticipate the gifts of encouragement that we can offer to you in the form of books, gifts, music and bibles. We have an extensive range of New King James Version Bibles that will interest all. From standard gift bibles, through lighter large prints to super giant prints for all your studies.

Recently we had a visit from a Christchurch couple by the name of Derek and Judith Hamilton who showed us a book that they have produced especially for South Canterbury. They have photographed our local early churches (including pre quake damaged churches) and collated them in a great pictorial view of our local church history. This is now available for a limited time at the Timaru Superstore for $29.99.

Over the next few weeks until Christmas we are open until 5.30pm for your convenience. We will still be open the Saturday 23 December and again in the short weeks after Christmas and New Year from 10am.
