Landmark year for
Bible stories in primary schools
Helen Crawford writes:
This year, Bible Society are celebrating an amazing 20 years of Open the Book! From its beginnings in a Bedford school in 1999, this Bible storytelling programme is now in one in six schools in England and Wales, delivered by an incredible 16,788 volunteers.
Twenty years on, we're not about to take our foot off the pedal! With a multi-faith pilot, international growth and a vision to bring the Bible to life for every child in every primary school, we're more excited than ever about seeing God's word at work through Open the Book.
Perhaps it's time for you to join the gang? Find out more about becoming an Open the Book storyteller and how to get a team together for your local schools.
