Open the Book
In Bingley, on Wednesday mornings (not every Wednesday!), a group of us go into one of three local schools and
present assemblies in which we act out bible stories. It is not onerous because as we do it we read
from the book rather than memorising the words, the book being “The Lion Storyteller Bible”. You do,
however, need to feel comfortable speaking out to a hall full of young people, so I realise it is not
everybody’s cup of tea!
For several years now Year 4 Primary School children from all the schools in Bingley and Eldwick,
including St Joseph’s, have attended sessions at either
St Wilfrids CofE Church in Gilstead or
Bingley Baptist church on Park Road
where the real meaning of Christmas or Easter is explained.
