PROGRAMME FOR 2017
Open the Book now reaches 2200 schools in the UK. Currently Worthing Bible Society Action Group runs a team which goes into two schools in Worthing. We would love to tell more churches about what we do and to encourage them to consider starting a team for themselves. A second team is almost ready to but needs a few more members.
There are now 2200 Open the Book Teams with Bible Society. Bible Society's aim is to go into every primary school in the UK.
The story tellers use a three year rolling programme of themed and dramatised Bible stories which are presented to primary schools. Open the Book is currently planning a fourth year syllabus This project assists schools in meeting their statutory collective worship obligations so is of real benefit. Ofsted are happy with this course. A recent survey showed that 47%of teachers were not confident about including religious or sacred texts in their teaching plans. So this really helps teachers. We would be happy to offer training to any new member and teams. There is a website for further information www.openthebook.net
