‘The Big Reveal’ - Faith Mission Bookshop opens new chapter with revamp

The team at the Faith Mission store in Ballymena have been busy working on a store revamp and redesign that will open a new chapter for the popular book and gift shop.

Much of the change has focused on the upstairs of the High Street premises and will enable the store to provide a space for those who visit the store to ‘catch their breath’ and enjoy a time to connect.

Extending an invitation and excited to let everyone see the changes, shop manager Andrew Houston said:

“We wanted to create a safe, welcoming and quiet space where people can come for rest, reading or prayer.

“We recognise that many of our customers come in not just looking for books, but also needing someone to talk to or pray with in a quiet confidential space outside of their normal settings. Ministers and others who are employed in full-time Christian service might also enjoy having a place to come to that is free from distraction and where reading material is available.”

Andrew added: “Prayer requests can also be left in a Prayer Box, which will also be located upstairs. Any messages can be deposited there, and these will be prayed for confidentially and discreetly by staff.”

Andrew went on to say that a brand-new coffee machine has also been installed in the revamped space:

“The minimum donation we will accept for tea, coffee and biscuits is £1. We know that people who use it will be happy to pay a fair price as all the donations will go towards enabling students to study at the Faith Mission Bible College in Edinburgh.”

Visitors to The Big Reveal will also be welcome to browse the main shop area, which is also looking fresher and more welcoming than ever before.

To top it off, there is also a 25% reduction in the price of all Christian Living and Theology books.
