Godly Play Training
GODLY PLAY CORE TRAINING 2019
Saturday 26 January 2019 – Monday 28 January 2019 (Australia Day Long Weekend)
What is Godly Play?
Godly Play is a Montessori method of telling Bible stories, developed by Jerome Berryman, using parables, sacred stories and liturgical lessons about religious traditions using simple materials.It invites the listener to connect faith stories with personal experience through wondering questions and open-ended response. Godly Play is used extensively with adults and children in many settings, from schools to hospitals, churches to aged care facilities. Godly Play can be a way of preparing children to join the worship life of their congregations as they experience sacred stories, symbols and rites and encounter the religious language associated with worship within the context of our faith tradition. This year we will be joined by Australian trainers Judyth Roberts and Brenton Prigge.
The cost for three days of training, including lunch and refreshments, is $450.
