Open the Book

Open the Book is an organisation which combines a passion for children hearing Bible stories and churches serving their local community.

Open the Book (OtB) offers primary school children an opportunity to hear key Bible stories told by a team of Christians from local churches, who present the stories during assemblies or acts of collective worship. Each presentation takes around 10–15 minutes and can be incorporated into a wider school assembly, or can stand alone. It is a three-year rolling programme with an additional, but optional year of material based on Christian values for schools.

There are currently several groups running within the Reigate Deanery delivering this wonderful service within local schools.
