Retailers queue for a copy of Hope in the Main Street
Over 150 retailers and authors received a copy of Rob Cotton's book at a recent exhibition.
Author and Superintendent Minister, Rob Cotton, was a guest at the recent Christian Resources Together annual retreat. His book signing event attracted a great deal of interest, with retailers queuing at times to receive a signed copy. The book was also promoted in a series of publishers’ quick fire presentations by Luke Jeffery, director of Onwards and Upwards Publishers.
Rob’s book demonstrates how we can practically take the Christian message of good news and hope into our communities, based on decades of experience in taking his congregations outside the four walls of the building and running local and national campaigns.
Photographs of the event were kindly taken by Dave Lock, manager of Manna Christian Centre bookshop in Streatham.
