'OPEN THE BOOK' TRAINING DAY IN LLANDUDNO
'Open the Book' is a work of the Bible Society and involved teams working together (from one church or across the churches) to tell Bible stories in primary school assemblies.
These teams of volunteer storytellers use drama, mime, props, costume and audience participation to present Bible stories in ways that are lively, interactive, engaging and fun!
At no cost to schools, this programme is OFSTED and SIAS approved and is a fantastic way to share the Bible.
Bible Society provide great scripts which make this an easy task for even the most inexperienced group to begin. All that’s needed is some training and time to prepare well together.
Interested? Want to know more? Keen to explore this happening in your locality?
Why not join us for a training day with 'Open the Book' trainers Richard Lake and Jennifer Roberts?
Coffee etc will be provided but please bring packed lunch with you.
Advanced booking is required. Book now simply by e-mail or by phone.
