St Paul's Chichester

Sanctuary - Hospitality - Spiritual Encounter


OtbOpen the Book (OtB) is a wonderful Bible Society outreach programme which offers primary school children an opportunity to hear key Bible stories. Nationwide, teams of Christians from local churches, 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.

Before the Covid restrictions, a team based at St Paul's visited schools fortnightly to retell the stories. Both the schools and the volunteers found this experience most rewarding and good relationships were formed. 

Happily, we are able to start our to school after the Easter break. We are hoping to recruit some new members. You do not need to have any particular acting skills, (we always need costume and prop makers), but a willingness to join in and lend a hand. Everyone is welcome. 

If you think this may be something you would be able to support and would like to hear more, please join us for an informal coffee and chat at St Paul's on Monday 4th April at 10a.m.
