Open the Book in Primary Schools

Can you help us please? A small team from Oakham Methodist Church have been taking Bible stories into Assemblies at Brooke Hill, Catmose, Brooke Priory and English Martyrs Primary Schools over the past seven years.

The visits are popular with the pupils and are at the invitation of the Heads. We use the national Open the Book scheme now used in over 2,000 schools, so that the schools always know what we plan to say. We would very much like some help from the other Oakham churches, either to join us – we visit schools on Tuesday mornings – or to set up a team from your church to visit a school.

If you would like to know more, please phone or email John Haden ( or 01572 720428) for more information and an invitation to come and see what we do on our visits to Brooke Hill and Catmose on 10 Oct, 14 Nov 12 Dec.
