Forming a team to serve your local primary school

Those of you who know me will know that I carry a passion for work in schools.

One of the ways this has been expressed has been in Christmas puppet roadshows which we have run in North Wales for the last 15 years.

Last year, members of our team were keen to explore the question “what can we do the rest of the year?”

One answer is to take regular primary school assemblies using the excellent “Open the book/Agor y llyfr” material.

This is a great resource which is simple to use for even the most inexperienced of teams and is available in both English and Welsh.

(* See below for a quick quote from the web site or check it out in full at www.openthebook.net )

Already, there are over 20 teams using this material successfully across North Wales.

If you would be interested in forming or joining a team to offer this to your local schools or if you have any questions, please do be in touch.

* Have you ever thought that children in schools might be missing out on what the Bible has to show them? They could go through their entire school life without ever learning about Adam and Eve, Noah, David, Jonah ... or even the life of Jesus and the stories of the New Testament.

OPEN THE BOOK offers a programme of themed and dramatised Bible stories at no charge to the schools. Each session is around 10 minutes long and fits comfortably into assembly times.

Our teams of volunteer storytellers use drama, mime, props, costume - even the children and staff themselves - to present Bible stories in ways that are lively, engaging, informative ... and great fun for everyone involved! So now, thanks to OPEN THE BOOK, children in schools will have the opportunity during Collective Worship to discover all the wonder and wisdom that the Bible can offer!

According to Wikipedia, Facebook is a "social networking website".  It was originally developed for college and university students but has since been made available to anyone with an email address.  People can select to join one or more participating networks, such as a high school, place of employment, or geographic region

Take a look and you'll find there is an Urban Saints North Wales group:-


an Urban Saints Wales Leadership group:-


and an Urban Saints National group:-


If you are or have been involved with Urban Saints, join up and start networking!
