Would you like to see the Bible being read by children from every family background across Birmingham?
The RE syllabus used by most Birmingham primary schools encourages pupils to read the Bible. It comes with a set of exemplar lesson plans. One of the great things about those lesson plans is that, when the pupils study Christianity they read Bible stories. For many children in our city today this may be the only opportunity they have to hold and read a Bible.
Many schools do not have Bibles. Ideally, we would like to see every child holding their own Bible, but schools are daunted by the cost.
If you or your church would like sponsor a local school by donating one or more class sets of Bibles, download the BCM Bibles for Primary Schools Appeal for details on how to get involved.
For further information, contact Sue Fearon at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0121 766 6603.
NB: The Bibles must be the two particular versions specified by the Birmingham SACRE schemes of work.
