We have twinned our Toilet with one in Uganda!
A Word from the Trustees
We would like to thank all our customers who have supported us loyally over the years. We would also add our thanks to all the volunteer helpers, without whom we could not function. Added to that are all the “friends” of Lighthouse, and New Creation before that, who have encouraged us and prayed for us. Finally we must thank our Lord Jesus in whose name and for whose glory the shop is run.

Lighthouse Christian Books and Café is a registered charity, which means no one “owns” it, but there is a board of trustees who oversee the running of the charity. It was started by a group of Christians from various churches and fellowships in Tiverton and the surrounding area.
Most of the staff are volunteers who give of their time freely to serve. There is at present one paid members of staff, Penny, the shop manager, but we are looking for a new deputy for her.

The charity was set up to fulfil three aims:-

to provide Christian resources, books, greeting cards, tapes (now CDs) for the people of mid-Devon, and to sell crafts from developing nations, bought from companies that pay their workers a fair wage.
to provide a place where Christians in the area could work together. The world sees each church working on its own. Here was an opportunity for Christians from many different churches and denominations to come together to serve the local community.
it was set up as an outreach, to offer people who are not Christians somewhere they could go to find out about the Christian faith. The intention was not to push Christianity onto anyone but to be there if people have serious questions.
