Richard Baxter

“When I get a little money I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes.
Erasmus

“We read to know we are not alone.”
“A children’s story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children’s story in the slightest.”
C. S. Lewis

Church Library

At the moment, Rolleston Baptist Church does not have a dedicated library. We don’t even have a church building!

However, Joe’s library is available for use by anyone within the congregation upon request. You can find an online catalogue of Joe’s personal/pastoral library on LibraryThing.
