OPEN THE BOOK TEAM. This ecumenical team, including Chapel member Sue Spinks, Minister Keith Edwards is a standby member takes regular Assemblies in three local Schools. The aim is to bring Bible stories and truths to the young people — to literally open the Book for them — using dramatic story-telling. Each Session consists of an introduction, a short drama and yes, we dress up appropriately! in which children are invited to take part, a sentence or two on how the story resonates in today's world, a word of prayer and a song to finish. Head teachers and teachers are helpful and children are very receptive. This is a really worthwhile activity — is your church involved? Details from Bible Society, who sponsor the initiative..
