Open the Book

Hello! Welcome to Open the Book and Bible storytelling in primary schools.

Welcome to Open the Book Cy

Open the Book is a project which offers primary school children an opportunity to hear the major stories of the Bible, from a team of Christians from local churches, who present the stories during assemblies/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.

Birmingham – Urban Pilot Scheme – Taster sessions and Training

Birmingham City Mission is facilitating an urban pilot scheme, whereby Open the Book are making subtle changes to their original programme in order to meet the needs of schools in urban areas where school communities are drawn from a variety of faith backgrounds. Some taster sessions and training sessions are being made available to anyone interested in sharing Bible stories with children in Birmingham and the surrounding area.
