Open the Book

Welcome to Open the Book and Bible storytelling in primary schools

Welcome to Open the Book Cy

Open the Book (OtB) offers primary school children an opportunity to hear key Bible stories told by a team of Christians from local churches, who present the stories during assemblies or 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 for schools.

Find out why OtB is growing so quickly and having such an impact on primary school children, teachers and volunteers all over England and Wales. Watch our video to see how you can influence your local community.
