Open the Book, a National Organisation, have teams across the country going into Primary Schools, taking assemblies with stories of the bible in a fun way. This is a really wonderful opportunity of reaching ALL the children aged between 5 and 11 in your community with the Bible stories.

The team from Bude went into Holsworthy Primary School just before Easter and took two assemblies. The response from the children and staff was extremely welcoming and requested us to continue this term. We need to establish a team in Holsworthy. There is training available. The assemblies are a set three year rolling programme so the only preparation is how you are going to present it.

It is an amazing experience to stand in front of 300 children presenting them with God's stories and have their full attention. God has opened the door in Holsworthy. So could this be something you could do?
