Open the Book!
The Open the Book
project takes a team of Christian people into our primary schools to present a dramatised Bible story-telling assembly every week. Open the Book has teams in 130 Gloucestershire schools already, giving an assembly to some 13,000 children every week.
MBC's Open the Book team works in the local schools using stories, mainly based on the Lion “Storyteller’s Bible”, accompanied by high impact visual aids and simple drama. The thirty, ten-minute stories are in sequence giving ‘snapshots’ of the whole Bible. Open the Book is offered as a free service to our local primary schools. The project draws on the skills, talents and the hard work of a lot of people. All of them have a keen interest in education and are active in their own churches.
Open the Book is led by Ali Richards.
