Open the BookA team of around six church members visit a local Primary School most weeks. They participate in an Assembly for between 250 and 300 Key Stage 1 pupils aged 4-7 years. The team dress up and present a Bible story using materials that have been endorsed by the Bible Society and Ofsted. Each week the team endeavours to get the pupils interested in the experience. The pupils very much look forward to their turn to 'Open the Book'. Everyone finds the experience very rewarding especially when the children's reaction reveals how much they have enjoyed the story and how much they are looking forward to the next time.
We are looking at possibly opening up a second 'Open the Book' team to take advantage of an opportunity at another school in the area. The current team are unable to accommodate this. If you are interested in becoming a part of this venture please speak to Debby Hacon.
