When Hockliffe Street Baptist Church bought the building next door to the church, known as Delta House, it was the intention that this would become a community resource. We are pleased to see that it is fulfilling its potential! For just over a year, it was good to be able to offer office space to one of the organisations which operate from Bossard House while that building was being renovated. This in turn has led to a number of short training courses being run in Delta House by other agencies. The facility is used by, amongst others, Central Beds. Council and the NHS as a venue for training days and conferences. Most pleasing of all, however, has been the gradual development of the building as a centre for counselling services: there are now a number of different groups offering counselling at various times throughout the week, both for adults and children, for general counselling as well as specific help with addictions.
The bookshop opens currently on Sundays after the morning services (12.00-12.30pm). There is a stock of Bibles, cards, Christian literature, CDs and DVDs, and orders can be placed for any specific Christian book or other media wanted. It is located between the sanctuary and the church hall.
