Over the last two years, two growing teams of ‘actors’ from the Totton Team & Cluster Churches are working with Churches Together in Totton and the Forest Edge to present the Bible Society’s ‘Open the Book’ to 7 separate infant and junior schools in the area.
The Team comprises all ages – either taking part or making costumes and props.
The impact we’re having:
Over 1,200 children are being introduced to the Word of God - endorsed by Head Teachers and teachers – which is enthusiastically received. We have a waiting list of 3 schools!
Why we think it’s important:
We are finding that many Primary School aged children do not appear to have heard many Bible stories. The Open Book format with its dramatic enactments has a significant impact on their awareness.
