Prior to the collapse of Communism in 1989, there was no religious education in Romania’s schools. Since then it has been re-introduced and supported with few and often inadequate materials. For the most part, children do not enjoy the religious classes and, therefore, do not have the chance to discover the message of the Bible. The religious classes are optional, so there is the risk that children’s participation in this subject will decline.
The Bible Adventure Programme is an exciting and interactive way to discover God’s Word. The lessons use a giant Bible, with a collection of books hidden inside it. Objects and props can be found within each book and pupils are invited to use these as they participate in re-telling the stories.
