Open the Book

Open the Book 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.

There are lots of ways that you can get involved with Open the Book, such as costumes, props, helpers and actors. 95% of young people have no church involvement* so Open the Book may be the only time children will hear the Bible being read (and acted out). Involvement in a team is normally an hour each week during term-time.
