DINGWALL CHRISTIAN BOOKSHOP We have this wonderful facility in Dingwall for Christian literature and it is a great way to show Christ’s presence in our community. However, the shop is unable to open some days it would like due to the shortage of volunteers. Can you spare two and a half hours a week to man the shop? Training and assistance is given. Please give it serious consideration.
