Open the Book


The Eight Saints Cluster is proud to have joined with our local Methodist Chapels to set up five Open the Book teams.  They are located in St Day, Feock, Gwennap, Chacewater and Stithians.    





The extract below from the Open the Book website tells us a little more about the importance of this outreach work in local primary schools.

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.

That’s why Open the Book is so important. It’s a three-year rolling programme of themed and dramatised storytelling at no charge to 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.
