United Benefice of Morton and Stonebroom with Shirland



Open the Book

"Open the Book" is a group of Christians from the Benefice who go into local village schools and take assemblies which feature stories from the Bible acted out in a fun and engaging way. 



JOSEPH & MARY COME TO SHIRLAND

 

On the 29th of December, at the United Benefice service at St Leonard’s, the Open the Book team presented the story of the Flight into Egypt.  This team comprises 14 members of all our local churches and they go into our schools twice each term to tell Bible stories in a dramatised form using simple props and costumes.

Many thanks to all who presented the story and for the enthusiastic participation by the congregation in the “Open the Book” song – and the donkey, who was so well behaved!
