What is Godly Play?

The Heart of Godly Play

* Creating Sacred Space, Building and working in community, Learning religious language, Using religious language to make meaning.

A Godly Play session includes a time to:-

* get ready, tell a story using objects and artefacts, explore the story more with open questions and discussion, respond with a free choice using a variety of materials – art… silence… play… writing… enjoy a simple feast and sharing.

Imagine someone who….

* creates a space to think big, learns as well as teaches, doesn’t always know the answer, builds a community, enables children to make connections, is open to the unexpected, slows down the pace, provides the tools then stands back.

Imagine an approach to Christian nurture and education that:-

* promotes knowledge, skills empathy, spiritual growth, develops the needs of the whole child, provides a multi-sensory approach to learning, develops language and communication skills, develops thinking skills, provides depth and reflection in every session.
