What is ‘Open the Book’

Open the Book is a national scheme for bringing Bible stories to primary children through teams of volunteers. Over a quarter of a million children are hearing and enjoying Bible stories through Open the Book?

What is happening locally?

We lead assemblies at St John the Baptist School in Ruyton XI Towns. Each week some of the school children volunteer to help act out the story and the rest of the school are encouraged to participate.

We have a team of six storytellers who use prepared scripts to present Bible stories in ways that are lively, engaging, informative … and great fun for everyone involved! The team choose the story from the prepared material, work out who is playing each part, prepare the costumes and props, and rehearse.
