The Bible in Literacy Resource was piloted in the early millennium years in Billericay, Essex (author's home town) and has been developing since with the support, encouragement and sponsorship from Bible Society. Teaching Staff have been delighted with its progress, with very positive feedback from all schools that have the packs. Over 270 schools in the UK have been supplied so far. The Bible in Literacy Resource pack, together with training, is now available to ALL Schools. Churches may like to consider 'Serving our Schools' with a sponsor pack. To order your pack or for more information please contact the Project Manager by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
