Open the Book

Home » News » New Readers

Following our presentation on Advent Sunday we had an influx of new members so the GAP Open the Book team is now made up of two teams. Team 1 have been in action for the first time this term when they went in to Andrews Endowed to tell them the story of Abigail (based on the story in 1 Samuel 25). It was a great pleasure to welcome newcomer, Brenda Milam, to the team and she said afterwards how much she had enjoyed it....
Team 2 found a warm welcome a-waiting them on their first ever visit to Alton Infants where they told the story of Hannah's Prayer (Based on 1 Samuel 1 &2). One little girl, who usually never speaks about what she does at school, could not stop talking about the assembly when she got home. Now that is the best kind of feedback. We will let you know how we get on as term progresses and we are looking forward to working alongside some of our other newbies .... Open the Book

But the rain didn't come to anything, and the walk, exploring little-used parts of the forest, was enjoyed by all five. A good meal at The Blue Bell completed a pleasant morning's exercise in beautiful...
