About Us

We love books!

We started in 1994, serving the thousands of people coming to Toronto to partake in the Toronto Blessing revival. Since then we've opened up to the public and carry a wide range of Christian books, bibles, worship music, art, gifts, clothing and more. We're pretty sure that we're now Toronto's longest running Christian bookstore.

Our Values

We believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God, and that relationship with God through Jesus Christ is the most fulfilling, enriching, thrilling way to live your life. Our passion is to help you gain easy access to literature, music, art and more that will draw you into that kind of a life, cultivating a deeper relationship with your loving Heavenly Father. We’re here to help you be transformed by the love of God.

  • Did you know that you can learn to hear God speak to you? Even now, today.
  • Did you know that you have a loving Father, who wants to be your dearest Daddy?
  • Did you know that your Daddy feels how much your heart hurts, and longs to bring you to wholeness?
  • Did you know that the Holy Spirit can fill you with power and authority, to experience breakthrough in your life and minister this transformation to others?

Helping people answer those questions is what drives us at Attwell Books, and in our store you’ll find all the resources necessary to say "Yes!" to each one.

Charitable Work

Everything that we do is for the purpose of Kingdom expansion, including our business structure. We are owned and operated by Catch The Fire Toronto, a charitable organization dedicated to transforming lives. Catch The Fire are active all around the world equipping the saints, ministering to the poor, planting churches, training up young people, and inviting the Holy Spirit to lead the whole time. You can learn more about the amazing work that Catch The Fire does around the world, right here.

Support Independent Bookstores

Did you know that getting the cheapest deal sometimes isn’t the best deal? At Attwell Books, we work hard to keep prices low, but we work even harder to ensure you have an amazing experience with us. We want to see your life changed by God’s power and that’s why we run this bookstore. And quite frankly that’s something that Amazon, iTunes or Netflix can never offer.

While we too appreciate the convenience and low cost that many big retailers can provide, there are some incredible things that happen when you shop locally. Consider the following:

  • We are passionate about transformation and have become experts in the kinds of teaching and music that can bring change in your life.
  • We enhance the community, by providing distinctive options in our corner of the city.
  • We support the local economy, your money stays here in Canada, and we hire staff from around Toronto.
  • We are not-for-profit! No one's pockets are being lined when you shop here, we just sow everything back into Kingdom expansion. We also frequently bring in products that are fundraisers for causes like freedom from sexual slavery, and child exploitation.

Please consider supporting Attwell Books as your local Christian bookstore, and encourage others to think about the many benefits of buying local.
