Just think about it. With your support children in your community will get the opportunity to encounter the Bible. Will you do it?

How you can help

  • Identify a co-ordinator within your church and ask them if they could read the information on this website and pray about it. Could they form a team from within your church, or a team from other churches? See our volunteer section for what’s needed
  • Highlight it from the pulpit and ask for response, then get those who have responded together to form a team and get involved. Remember, it just takes an hour a week
  • Decide that your church would like to get involved and see it as a key priority. Get your church leader, or yourself, to co-ordinate a team. We’ll provide training and resources; you provide the time and build relationships which can lead to the schools coming to special services like Easter or Christmas
  • Help advertise the need for volunteers – download a poster and display in your church.

‘Open the Book brings the stories to life. Sometimes when you read a book, you go off it because there are too many words. What’s really good about Open the Book is that everyone has a chance to join in. I had never heard these stories before. My favourite story was when Jesus finds a paralysed man and heals him. Jesus did a good thing.’

Alfie, aged 9
