Activities for children and families:
Storytellers or ‘Open the Book’ is a programme for schools organised by the Bible Society. Stories are presented in dramatic form with many of the storytellers dressing-up in costume, acting out the stories as they are narrated. Bible stories are presented at school assembly fortnightly throughout the term.
A team of volunteers visit Ettington school every Thursday to share Godly Play. They sit together with the children in a sacred circle to listen to a Bible story which is told using appropriate props. Then the children have time for ‘wondering’ where they are encouraged to talk about the story. Godly Play is a special time where the children get to explore such questions as: ‘How big is God?’ – ‘ Who was God’s grandma?’ – ‘Did Jesus travel to Jerusalem in a car?’
