At Prestbury St Mary's Infant and Junior schools each week we welcome the Open the Book team to tell Bible stories as part of assemblies. Between four and seven volunteers from St Mary’s, St Nicolas' and Prestbury United Reformed Churches use props and costumes to dramatise and present the stories – with the help of the children – in a lively way.
Open the Book is a sub brand of Bible Society, a charity that seeks to share God's Word across the world in accessible ways. In May last year Bible Society came into the Infant School with a full production team to create a video and other material to promote the Open the Book project.
The video is now on the website - simply go to the Quick Links panel on the home page and click the Video Resource Centre.
The material (words, pictures and video) gathered at St Mary's is being used in a variety of outlets, including:
· A Bible Society volunteer pack, encouraging people to start up Open the Book groups in their area, and encouraging others to give money to support Open the Book nationally
· Bible Society’s promotional literature including a supporter magazine and prayer newsletter
· Bible Society’s website and email communications
· Bible Society’s Facebook page and Twitter.
· Bible Society’s YouTube channel
· Other corporate communications such as presentations, annual report, donor reports.
