It's not easy to find a Christian bookshop these days - and with such variety. What a lovely place!
The need for Christian literature and materials to be readily available was also one of our passions, and we have seen amazing answers to prayer over the years as the business has developed into what it is today.
In 2008, Beacon Books was awarded the UK "Small Retailer of the Year" award in recognition of its achievement in having started from virtually nothing to becoming a thriving, relevant business. Kingdom Krafts Fair Trade Centre, which is housed in the same premises, has a wide range of Fair Trade food, gifts, clothing, stationery and household goods.
I discovered the best hot chocolate in the world here! Being here is one of the hardest things, because I always want to go home with the whole gorgeous shop!
Two local churches in Llandudno, Emmanuel and Gloddaeth United, partner in facilitating the shop function and grow. There are two part-time managers and 10 or so volunteers, making a formidable team.
A cup of Fair Trade tea or coffee, along with a delicious home-baked cake while you make up your mind what to buy is always on hand!
