Do you know that over a quarter of a million children are hearing and enjoying Bible stories through Open the Book? Wouldn't it be great if every child had the opportunity to hear the Word of God?
'Open the Book' is a national scheme for bringing Bible stories to primary children through teams of volunteers. The storytellers, using prepared scripts, present Bible stories in ways that are lively, engaging, informative ... and great fun for everyone involved! The sessions are short — just half an hour to cover assembly times. The GAP 'Open the Book' team now has two groups of volunteers taking Bible stories into 5 local schools; Andrews Endowed, The Butts, Alton Infants and Wootey Junior and Infant Schools. The team occasionally visits the GAP library club as well to present a Bible story.

A wonderful entry in a Thank You card, received from the children of Andrews Endowed, said... 'Thank you for your acting and your courage'...

Do you have the courage to be part of the local team and take Open the Book assemblies into the primary schools in our town? We would like to extend our work, so please think about joining us. You would be part of a team — we work together to present the stories. You do not have to commit to every session — we work on a rota basis and at the moment present about 12 assemblies a term. If you would like to know more, have a look at the Open the Book website -http://www.openthebook.net or have a chat with one of our team leaders ...

We will tell the next generation....and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God........
