This is a unique area and sales in the Ipswich shop do not always reflect the national top 10. 

They add:

"There is a definite trend for colouring books for relaxation, we have a choice of several and there are more coming in the next few weeks. We have done very well with the Images of Grace, which I think is our favourite, and Just Cards will be bringing out another called Images of Hope, around Easter time".

"Quiet Center by Susan Sutton was recommended regularly by the manager, who read it three times last year. A local ladies' group is now reading it together".

"This list covers the wide range of individual book sales during 2015 and doesn't include the hundreds of copies of daily reading notes and Sunday School material that comes through the shop out to the churches in the locality".

"We are very thankful to all the churches who support us in this way and if there are any more that would like to place regular orders with us we are glad to supply material on a regular basis, just let us know your requirements about 6 weeks in advance of the start date each period".

"The CLC Bookshop in Ipswich can be found on St Matthews Street, having been in various locations around the town over the years. The shop is run by volunteers, two full time and several part time helpers. Several teenagers have helped on Saturdays and holidays, then gone on to further study or full time employment".

"We are here to serve the church community in Ipswich and surrounding areas and to be a witness on the High Street to those who don't know the Lord Jesus".

"Any item not stocked can usually be ordered in a day or two from our own well stocked CLC warehouse near Chester. Any customers living at a distance, please use our online shop for your convenience. Otherwise we are happy to post items from the Ipswich shop".

"A warm welcome awaits anyone who visits us, we are open Mon-Sat 9.30-5pm, except bank holidays".
