Open the Book is apart of the Bible Society and is a project which offers primary school children an opportunity to hear the major stories of the Bible, from a team of Christians from local churches, who present the stories during assemblies/acts of Collective Worship. Each presentation takes around 10-15 minutes and can be incorporated into a wider school assembly, or can stand alone. It is a three-year rolling programme with an additional, but optional year of material based on Christian Values.”

Teams from St Cassian’s, St George’s and St Chad’s go into three of our local schools, once a month, to lead the school’s assemblies and collective worship. We present a small dramatic bible study and offer a short reflection and prayer to get local children involved in the Bible. 

“Open the Book is a special experience. It brings the Bible to life for children. It is lovely visiting the schools and the children always look forward to us coming. They greet us with a big hello and wave us goodbye when we leave.” Freda Brugsch, a member of the Open the Book team.
