About Us

It is our heart to get Bibles and good Christian literature into the community, to help people to discover a relationship with Jesus Christ and to encourage and resource Christians in their life’s walk.

It all began in the late 1980s when evangelical Christians from different denominations came together to pray. Out of a desire to share the good news of the Gospel (link to summary of Gospel) various new things came about, one of which was this bookshop. With the help of Faith Mission, the doors were opened on John Street in 1989. The following year the shop was handed over to a local management committee made up of Christians from different denominations in the area, and Faith Mission generously allowed the shop stock to be paid back over a number of years.

Since then the shop has moved to James Street and then to High Hayes Terrace, the current location, with different managers and staff from local churches, all volunteers. In 2005, the ministry set up as a charity, Kilkenny Christian Literature Trust.
