We take pride in providing a diverse collection of Christian resources to support our members' spiritual growth and development. Our library is an excellent place to find materials for personal study, sermon preparation, and teaching materials for Sunday school and Bible study groups.


In addition to our physical resources, we also have a growing collection of digital resources, including e-books and audiobooks, which can be accessed online from anywhere with an internet connection.

We believe that our Christian resources can be a valuable asset for pastors and church members in their ministries and personal spiritual journeys. We invite you to come and explore our collection and see how we can support you in your Christian walk.
