Open The Book
Enabling every child to hear the story of the Bible at school in their primary years.
Today, so many children could miss out on the great classic stories from the Bible – Noah, Daniel and the life of Jesus could be closed chapters if youngsters don’t get an opportunity to engage with the Bible. Open the Book is a three-year rolling programme of themed and dramatised storytelling at no charge to primary schools. The stories are taken from the Lion Storyteller Bible. A team of volunteers from the church go into Lakeside School on Wednesday mornings and use drama, mime, props, costumes and even the children themselves to present the Bible stories in lively and informative ways. The children love it when they have an opportunity to dress up and help tell the stories and are happy to answer questions about them. We find it very worthwhile watching the children’s reactions and noticing how much they remember! It’s amazing how much they take in!
