Open the Book is a three year rolling programme of dramatised Bible stories presented by teams of volunteers, free of charge, to Primary schools. Volunteers present Bible stories in an accessible and enjoyable way and provide a resource that assists schools in meeting collective worship obligations. In 2013 Open the Book became part of the Bible Society.
Locally, all the Primary schools which feed into Lacon Childe School are registered with Open the Book. A team from St.Mary’s goes into Cleobury Mortimer Primary School each Wednesday morning during term time to deliver an Open the Book assembly. We currently have seven volunteers in our team.
