Open the Book Training 2018

Open the bookOpen the Book began in 1999 and now regularly reaches over half a million children with classic Bible stories during Collective Worship (often referred to as assemblies).  Open the Book teams are made up of members of the local church or from several churches working in partnership who go into primary schools to deliver a 10 minute Bible story assembly.  Some Birmingham schools are asking for Open the Book and more volunteers are needed to meet the demand.

Birmingham City Mission is facilitating an urban pilot scheme, whereby Open the Book are making subtle changes to their original programme in order to meet the needs of schools in urban areas where school communities are drawn from a variety of faith backgrounds.  A series of training opportunities are being made available.  The sessions are open to anyone interested in sharing Bible stories with children in Birmingham and the surrounding area.

Training sessions are from 9.15am to 3.15pm (with a 30 minute lunch break).  Completion of this training is sufficient for an individual to register as an Open the Book story teller.  Forthcoming training dates are:

• Weds 19th September

• Mon 1st October

• Thurs 25th October

• Thurs 15th November

• Mon 10th December

All courses take place at BCM HQ, 2 Langdon Street, Birmingham B9 4BP
