Newport has been very blessed to have had as many as four different Christian Bookshops in the town over the years, but that has now dwindled down to just the one.
For more than 45 years there has been one on Lower Dock Street, but in 2001 it nearly closed for good too. Thankfully a local businessman and active member of the local Christian community, Martyn Sheppard and his wife Karen stepped in, believing that it was important to keep having a Christian presence on the high street, they took over the business and thus ‘Shepherds Christian Bookshop’ as we know it was born.
Since then they have put much time and effort into creating a spacious modern friendly shop selling Christian resources to meet the needs of Newport, South Wales and surrounding areas, which with the help of the internet covers the entirety of the United Kingdom.
We sell a wide range of Bibles, Christian Literature, Music, DVD’s, Greetings Cards, Bible cases, Gifts for all occasions including Children’s gifts and much more. We also have a coffee bar and seating area, and encourage customers to take their time browsing the shelves. Our friendly staff are always happy to help, chat and listen.
