Here are some useful Christian resources that we recommend, whether you are a committed believer or searching for answers. You will also find a selection of worship songs from YouTube scattered through the page. Enjoy!

The Amazing Gospel Story

The ‘Amazing Gospel Story’ presents the ‘good news’ of God’s divine love and plan for humanity in fifty hand drawn pictures, images and symbols.
Beginning with creation account, the story unfolds, image by image, picture by picture, through the ‘old covenant’ message to the life, teaching and works of Jesus, the outpouring of the Spirit and the ‘new life’ of the first followers and community of Jesus who spread the gospel across the Roman world.
Whether you are someone exploring spirituality, faith or the gospel of Jesus, or if you are a follower of Jesus and want to grow more in your faith and knowledge of the gospel, or indeed if are a believer who wants to learn to share and teach the gospel message to others, then you should find this unique visual approach to presenting the gospel of great benefit, along with associated follow on course and printed resources.
May it assist you in developing a greater understanding of the gospel, building a living faith in Jesus Christ, enabling spiritual renewal in your life and living as a disciple of Jesus.

It was Vox Hibernia - Latin for "the voice of the Irish" - that brought the 5th century slave-turned-priest Patrick back to the land of his captivity and set in motion a transformation that sent shock waves across Europe.

Our passion at VOX is to give voice to Irish Christians once again - to inspire, question, equip, inform, wrestle, challenge and encourage a new wave of Irish world-changers.'

Teach Solas

"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." John 1:5

Teach Solas is an online Irish Christian bookshop. We chose the name Teach Solas for our business as in the Irish language, Teach Solas means Lighthouse. The lighthouse is an important symbol in Ireland, being an island nation, as well as in the Christian faith. It represents a safe haven, a source of light and it stands on rock: which is a firm foundation. We want to be a resource in bringing the gospel and the hope we have to every citizen on this island.
Teach Solas is run by Irish Christians. We decided to use our God-given talents to create an online bookshop for Irish Christians. We hope that it will be a source of Christian books to study and expand your knowledge of the word.
We stand by our principles and moral guidance in what we sell and how we conduct our business. While we might make mistakes, we want God to guide our path and be the centre of the journey in bringing more biblical literature to the island. You won't find every book here but as we continue to grow we will be able to stock more for our customers. (read more)
