Christian Superstore Timaru, 102 Stafford Street, Timaru: 

  • Fathers’ Day is coming and we have a great selection of books, mugs, cards and gifts available for the “Father” figure in your life.
  • Myles Munroe in his book explores “The Fatherhood Principle” discussing the design that God has for man and their identity within a family and community.
  • Derek Prince follows up this same theme in his book “Husbands and Fathers” and the purpose that God has for men both in a spiritual and physical example in life.
  • While in her tract Jenny Kutz explores the meaning and relationship that we all can have with “Abba” Father that we can have a heavenly Father that we can accept adoption into Abba’s family. A home not of this world.

Sometimes we can confuse our role in life and each of these books reflects on who we are in God and empowers each of us to become more of who we truly are on the inside.    The volunteers at your local Christian Bookshop look forward to seeing you soon.

Giving  Everything that we have is a gift from God.

You can contribute financially in the following ways:

  • Cash, cheque or envelope in the offering plate, thanks.
  • Automatic Payment or internet banking – Acc no: 03-1714-0405434-01
