This project offers primary school children an opportunity to hear the major stories of the Bible, presented chronologically or thematically, during the school year.

It is given by a team of Christians from the benefice, who present the stories during assembly or collective worship. We have a team of 10 volunteers for our first project which will began in September 2019 at Great Smeaton Primary School. 

During Advent 2018, the Youth Group raised £200 in aid of the homeless. 10 youngsters and 3 youth group leaders slept all night in the Church. The money raised directly goes to the Church Urban fund .
