2019 marks 20 years since Open the Book first started. A group of volunteers attended Primary School assemblies in Bedford in 1999 to read and act out stories using the Lion Storyteller Bible. It is now a nationwide success which has been giving Primary School children the opportunity to hear key Bible stories, from a team of Christians from local churches for TWO DECADES.
We would love Open the Book teams, and representatives, from the schools they work with from all over Guildford Diocese to join us. Bob Hartman and Bishop Jo will also be joining us to mark this impressive milestone! We plan to have a short celebratory service followed by afternoon tea.
More information will follow as our plans for this celebration unfold!
