Open the Book

Children love stories – especially Bible stories when they’re interactive, engaging and fun. Open the Book began in 1999 and since then thousands of school children have discovered Bible stories, during assembly and collective worship. Today, so many children could miss out on the great classic stories from the Bible – Noah, Daniel and the life of Jesus could be closed chapters if youngsters don’t get an opportunity to engage with the Bible.

Open the Book is a three-year rolling programme of themed and dramatised storytelling for primary schools. Teams of volunteers throughout the country use drama, mime, props, costume – and even the children and staff themselves – to present the Bible stories in lively and informative ways.

Steph and other volunteers ‘Open the Book’ every other Tuesday in Marldon C of E Primary School.

Please contact Steph Webb if you would like to join in – Tel: 01803 524135.

Our usual Sunday services at Marldon in May and June are at 9.15 am.

Please note that there will be NO SERVICE at Marldon on Sunday May 26th when there will be a Team Service at Bridgetown at 10.30 for Revd Jane's farewell.

All welcome to any or all of our services. We'd love to see you there!
