Open the Book

Open the Book is a project to offer Bible stories as part of a weekly assembly in schools. We began Open the Book in the Junior School back in October with a team of 6 people. The aim is to present Bible Stories in an accessible and enjoyable way, and to enable children to engage imaginatively with the stories. It has proved to be a fantastic time so far. Not only is it great fun for the children, who are telling us they love it, but we are having a great time preparing and telling the stories too. Open the Book also helps schools to fulfil their statutory collective worship obligations and it contributes to the children’s religious, spiritual and moral education. We have had excellent, positive feedback from the teachers. If you are interested in joining the team, we can always add more people in so do get in touch with Tim, Claire, Ruth, Eileen, Rachel or Richard.
