We are aware of the implication of this decision for our staff and our customers, and are truly sorry to have to do this...

The Burning Bush Christian Bookshop is run by Billy and Ruth Neill, who took it over in 1991 from its previous owner.
It was in 1991 that Lurgan girl Patricia Moutray, proprietor of the Burning Bush, felt called to a Bible College in England and put the shop up for sale.
"We were challenged as we felt a Christian witness was leaving the town," said Ruth. "As we approached Patricia about the possibility of purchasing the shop, the Lord opened the door wide with a word from Galatians 6:10, and we knew without a doubt this was what He wanted us to do." "Let us do good to all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith."
Open Treasure: a major development at Durham Cathedral
Durham Cathedral is undertaking a project called Open Treasure - a major development which will transform the way in which the Cathedral buildings are experienced, understood and used to the glory of God, both as working buildings and to the benefit of those who visit.
The current phase of Open Treasure focuses on the monastic claustral buildings. Work has begun to transform what was previously The Treasures of St Cuthbert exhibition area, into a retail space full of character and beauty in its own right - we are calling this work Phase 1a of Open Treasure. We expect the new shop to open late summer 2012...
A Turbulent History Durham Cathedral Shop has had a somewhat turbulent history in recent years, outlined briefly below. Following the Brewer brothers' early relinquishment of their lease, however, the shop reopened on 1st March 2010 under the Cathedral's own management.
The shop's location and operations are currently under review as part of the Cathedral's ongoing World Heritage Site development strategy (see opposite: "Open Treasure"). More information will be posted here as and when it emerges...
Despite the claimed bankruptcy, the family (headed up by J Mark and Philip W Brewer) continued to trade under a variety of spurious identities until 2009 when the Charity Commission seized control of the parent organisation, the St Stephen the Great Charitable Trust, and began to close down its operations.
Durham appears to have been the only shop in the group over which the Charity Commission declined to take an interest.
