Saint James Open The Book
Open the Book began in Bedford in 1999, when a group of Christians started presenting Bible stories in school assemblies. It was so popular it grew and grew, becoming a national charity. In 2013 Open the Book became part of Bible Society.
Now members of local churches go into schools and tell stories in a 10-15 minute presentation. This can be incorporated into a wider school assembly, or stand alone.
Open the Book presents the Bible in primary schools in an accessible and enjoyable way, which helps schools meet their statutory collective worship obligations.
Saint James’ has an Open the Book Team that visit schools within Quedgeley. If you would like to join our team then contact Gill on 01452 721683.
