This exciting venture began over 30 years ago and was the vision of the late Revd. A Dennis Burton who saw a canal narrow boat that he believed God wanted moved to the wharf side at Bude Canal in Cornwall and set up as a Christian Bookshop.  A Charitable Trust was set up to make the Vision a reality. Over many years we have gone through several ups and downs literally, however, the Lord’s faithfulness has shown us that He really does want this missional work to continue for the benefit of locals and visitors to the seaside town.  We continue to thank God for His many blessings during this time and look forward to what lies ahead. A relaxing browse through our shelves whilst listening to great Christian tracks can bring nourishment to the soul.  This is a place where you can meet with God.

We stock a range of lovely gifts and cards if you are looking for something for that special occasion or just because……

We also supply sheet music, including ABRSM. Through our trade suppliers, we always have a good range of special offers on display, including current popular titles, often bringing us into line with web prices – and with the advantage of allowing customers to browse before they buy.

We are happy to post items to customers living out of the area who do not have a Christian bookshop near to them, and also to fulfil special orders.

In 2016 The Ark Angel Christian Bookshop celebrated 30 years of mission in the town of Bude. We have a wealth of experience in sourcing just the right book or resource to equip you in your personal walk with Christ or in ministry. If we do not have an item in stock we are happy to order it for you
