School & Church Working Together

There are a range of projects and resources which can help churches support schools as they support young people exploring faith.


Godly Play

Godly Play is a montessori approach to telling Bible Stories using hand-crafted figures or objects.


Prayer Spaces

Prayer Spaces allow individuals to break from the demands of a busy routine and enter quiet and rest through activities and a special setting which helps them reflect on questions of life, God and spirituality.

Open the Book

Open the Book (OtB) is a project which offers primary school children an opportunity to hear key Bible stories, from a team of Christians from local churches, who present the stories during assemblies/acts of Collective Worship. Each presentation takes around 10–15 minutes and can be incorporated into a wider school assembly, or can stand alone. It is a three-year rolling programme with an additional, but optional year of material based on Christian Values for schools.
