Our mission statement is
'Christian resources for everyone'.
Established in 1985, Cornerstone Christian Bookshop has been in operation for more than 25 years. It started as a church bookstall in Matlock Bath, run by members of the local church with the prime aim of providing Christian literature to the local area. It was opened by representatives of Christian Literature Crusade. A charitable trust was formed and shortly afterwards we moved to rented premises in Matlock. Increasing support and prayer led us to our present bookshop at Dale Road, Matlock where we have been for 16 years.
Cornerstone’s prime objective is to promote the Christian faith through a wide variety of Christian literature including Bibles, books, Bible reading notes, Christian magazines etc. It also sells music CDs, DVDs and gifts for all ages to schools, local churches, local residents and holiday visitors to this popular tourist area.
The building is on three levels. The Ground floor is the main retail area where the welcoming display is laid out to aid your selection. There is an attractive and informal meeting area on the First floor. This is used by a number of Christian and community groups of up to 15 people for training, discussion groups, prayer and counselling. The Second floor is used for storing stock.
The shop is manned by volunteers from various local churches who are all very willing to assist you in finding the right goods, to play you a demonstration CD or take your Bible Reading note order. We provide resources at competitive prices for local churches to run their own bookstalls. We are also able to provide goods on a sale or return basis for conferences and other larger group meetings.
We have a fantastic team of volunteers and a board of trustees who run and manage the bookshop.
