Books Plus provides a relaxed atmosphere to listen to music, browse through CDs and look for books which may perhaps answer their questions perhaps about their diseases or maybe bigger issues, like the meaning of life. Books Plus is a Christian and non-denominational Christian shop which stocks equal amounts of Christian and secular literature on its shelves.
Our primary role is to serve God in Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.
In association with the hospital chaplains, the Chapel Bookstall and Christian visitors – both clergy and lay – we try to be God’s physical presence in the hospital. Through our Christian books, especially our bibles, we give patients, visitors and hospital staff the opportunity to access God’s Word. Many of our customers are non-Christians so a visit to our shop may be the first time they even see a bible or Christian book.
Our hope and prayer is that God’s spirit may move those who don’ t know him yet to start their journey to Him, even if just by browsing our books.
