Service of Thanksgiving and Celebration of ‘Open the Book’ 20th Anniversary
Saturday 18th May
17:15 - 18:15
Description:In 1999 a small group of church volunteers started going into primary school assemblies in Bedford to read and act out stories using The Lion Storyteller Bible. After being inspired by this, the project spread into Gloucestershire in 2001. Later, in 2007, a national charity was formed. With increasing growth of volunteer numbers into the thousands, Open the Book joined Bible Society in 2013. This special service at Wells Cathedral gives thanks and celebrates the work of Open the Book on the 20th anniversary of the founding of the organisation.
