  • Godly Play is a creative approach to nurturing children’s faith – helping children become more fully aware of the mystery of God’s presence in their lives.
  •  Godly Play also appeals to adults who want to wonder about God!
  •  Godly Play is a method of storytelling using hand-crafted materials so that children see, hear and have the opportunity to physically engage core Bible stories.
  •  Godly Play contains wondering questions that provide the opportunity for children to think about the story and wonder what it means.
  •  Godly Play teaches children the art of using religious language – parable, sacred story, silence and liturgical action.
  •  Godly Play can be used in a variety of settings – church, home, hospitals and care homes for the elderly.
  •  Godly Play is rooted in Montessori tradition, developed over 30 years by Dr. Jerome Berryman and is based on tried and tested approaches.
