"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 offers primary school children in the UK an opportunity to hear the major stories of the Bible, presented chronologically, in a three-year rolling programme. It is a free service given to each school by a team of Christian volunteers from local churches, who present a series of stories during collective worship.
The volunteers use drama, mime, props, costume – and even the children and staff themselves – to present the Bible stories in lively and informative ways.
Open the Book began in 1999 and since then thousands of school children have discovered Bible stories, during assembly and collective worship.
