Open The Book

open the book



Together with some members of other local churches, members of the Halesworth United Reform
Church form a significant part of 2 teams, both of which provide Assemblies in local primary
schools. These teams bring Bible stories (using dramatic presentations) to children aged between
4+ and 11years old.
One of the Teams covers the Bramfield, Wenhaston and Holton area and the other team, holds an
assembly for most weeks of school term in the Edgar Sewter School, Halesworth.

Thank you Eileen At the final Open the Book assembly of the summer term we said goodbye to one of our founder OTB members Eileen McAllister. Eileen has been our coordinator for some years now, putting together our termly programmes, and organising the planning and production rotas. We will miss Eileen very much, not least for her empathetic portrayals of the parts she has taken and heartfelt words to the children by way of introduction or conclusion to the stories. Gifts were presented to Eileen and Sarah (Vorster) who is also leaving the team as well as a certificate commemorating Eileen’s service at the school with Open The Book. A coffee morning at Dorothy Courtis’ home, to which all past and present OTB members were invited, celebrated Eileen’s service to complete our farewells. Don
