“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Psalm 119:105

The benefits of reading are proven far and wide. According to Healthline, reading books can strengthen your brain, increase your empathy, build your vocabulary, and prevent cognitive decline whilst helping to reduce stress, sleep better, and even live longer. Following World Book Week, we decided to create a Christian section in the Learning Resources Centre called ‘Reading for the Soul’ and asked if anyone had any books suitable for 11-16 year olds. To our surprise and delight, St John’s Church in Hartford gifted us with a huge box full of wonderful, brand new books for our students and Icthus Christian Books in Northwich also supplied some books. In this section, our students will find ‘apologetic’ books, full of reasoning for those questioning faith, biographies, novels, and lots more exciting literature. We encourage everyone to come along and sample these and give a massive ‘thank you’ to our donors for their generosity, which will delight and edify our students for years to come.
