Church-School Club (CASK) and links with our schools


  • Volunteers from St John's provide a lunch-time weekly club in Staplegrove Church School for Key Stage 1 children. This includes a bible reading and associated activity
  • This could be extended to provide an after-school club, although this would be more of a commitment from volunteers
  • An after school club is already been held at Norton Fitzwarren Church School although this is run by a member of staff at the school

Open the Book

  • This is an initiative which has been developed by the Bible Society and is already running in a large number of schools across the country 
  • Volunteers go into schools and use the Lion Bible in assemblies or collective worship to act out stories with the children
  • It has been suggested that we should explore the initiative further to provide Benefice Open the Book sessions in our schools

If you would like further information or become involved as a volunteer or have any other ideas for creating links to our schools, please contact Iona on 276080 or Moira on 279686. They would love to hear from you
