Changes at Canaan Bookshop

At the end of January 2018 Andy Gilmour,  manager / centre director of Canaan bookshop since its inception in 1979, is retiring from managing the shop. Barry Mockford, who has worked at Canaan for some years, is succeeding him in that role from 1st January 2018.

There will be a thanksgiving service for Andy’s 38 years of ministry at Canaan on Sunday 28th January 2018, 6.30 pm at Staines Methodist Church. It will also be an opportunity to pray for him in his new season of ministry both in the UK and Ghana, and for the future ministry of Canaan. All are welcome to the thanksgiving service. Space is limited and to assist with catering, please contact the bookshop in advance to advise you will attend.

Canaan will very much be continuing to serve the area with its well stocked bookshop and valued counselling ministry. To keep up to date with Canaan, click here to read the latest news.
