The Scottish Bible Society has worked with churches and schools for over 20 years, most recently contributing to the Religious and Moral Education strands of the Curriculum for Excellence. At the end of 2016 our Bibleworld Mobile classroom was retired after a decade of service and a new resource was sought that could continue to help churches build supportive links with schools and families in their communities. The next generation of Bibleworld is an after school resource designed to be used in book club format.
Bibleworld Books is an innovative educational resource designed for churches to use in small groups with school-age children. Adapted from the Bible text, each storybook has bright, original illustrations and is carefully resourced to promote literacy, reading and learning within the Scottish school curriculum.
All resources needed to run an after-school club are available for download by registered users from this website, including volunteer training advice, School curriculum compliance notes, guidance notes on set-up and all session outlines for the published books. Sample copies can be requested now with the full New Testament series available from Spring 2018.
