Open the Book is a Bible Society project which offers primary school children an opportunity to hear key Bible stories.
St Mark’s has a team of up to 12 volunteers who go in to Kempshott Infant and Junior schools present the bible stories in a fun way in the school assemblies. Everyone looks forward to the visits. Both staff and children enjoy listening, joining in and talking about the stories afterwards.
At Christmas we invite children from the Infant school to the church for a retelling of the nativity story called ‘The Christmas Journey’.
“Thank you for letting us come to your church on Wednesday. My favourite part was meeting the shepherds and seeing the three kings. It was great fun!”
