Lion Storyteller Bible Themes

For each story in the Lion Storyteller Bible, there are a selection of key themes, and a possible aim sentence. These may be of use to those using the storys in assemblies who wish to add an introduction, conclusion, song or game to draw out a teaching point.


The Big Picture

The Big Picture series goes through the main stories in the Bible, showing how they fit together with recurring themes. Each assembly is written to last 20 minutes and includes a Bible story, the Big Picture (how it links in with the themes) and a suggested action song. The stories are told using different techniques such as drama, puppets, poetry and music. The Big Picture series consists of 11 assemblies, usually delivered one per month over the school year.
