Open the Book

Jenny Mossman and Chris Johnson, the children’s workers from Knutsford Methodist Church and St John’s Church have been good friends of Egerton for the past year, coming in regularly to lead assemblies.

Chris is now famous for his Buzz Lightyear impersonation and Jenny for her odd socks! They have joined forces with a small team to deliver a nationwide project called ‘Open the Book’.

This is delivered in schools across the country to teach some aspects of the National curriculum for RE. Their first assembly was yesterday and it was absolutely brilliant! The aim of the project is to tell the stories of the old testament through story telling, drama and music.

This complements the work covered by the teachers in RE lessons. One of the team, David, is from Kenya! He was delighted to learn of our partnership with Egerton in Njoro and wants to learn more! The team will be coming in every Thursday throughout this year until May.
