All the inside info


Kings is all about people. We’re part of a not-for-profit charity, so we’re much more bothered about making a difference in people’s lives than making money. We have bills to pay and staff to employ, so much as we’d love to, we can’t give everything away, but we do try to keep great value for our customers!

We’ll give you a great welcome!

We’re part of the River of Life Church – a contemporary local Church, with loads of people of all ages, who are inspired by Jesus Christ to make this world a better place for everyone. Kings is a reflection of that, helping to revive Dumfries town centre with a lovely coffee and a cake (or whatever you fancy!).

Chocolate cake


Kings started in 1998 with a Christian bookshop at the other end of Queensberry Street. in 2003 we took the opportunity to move closer to the Fountain Square, in the old Nothern Rock building and added coffee to the books. The coffee side took off and is now a major feature of Kings.

Christian books are still a feature of Kings, however. When many many Christian bookshops around the UK have closed in the last few years, we continue to supply a selection of interesting, upbuilding and thought provoking books, as well as Bibles, of course.


We’re looking forward to a great future, here in the heart of Dumfries. Coming soon will be a well equipped quiet sanctuary, suitable for small gatherings, business events and one to one meetings when you need some privacy.

Adapting to your needs is something we take seriously at Kings, so if you have ideas, suggestions or feedback, we’d love to hear from you. Have a word with the staff or drop us an email to mark@kingsonline.co.uk. Thanks.
