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.

We are very lucky as a church to have a great Open the Book team and to have been given the opportunity to share the project in Bentley New Village Primary School, Intake Primary Academy and Arksey Primary School.

Whilst there are still restrictions in place due to Covid-19 we are running Open the Book sessions in video format, which can be viewed online - for more information please contact us!
