Godly Play

The Godly Play curriculum engages what is most exciting about religious education: God inviting us into—and pursuing us in the midst of—Scripture and spiritual experience. Godly Play practice teaches us to listen for God and to make authentic and creative responses to God’s call in our lives.

Please come!

Who: All Parishioners

What: Godly Play Open House

When: October 12 after the 10:00 am worship service

Where: Undercroft Godly Play room

Godly Play is an experience of adults and children dwelling together in the mystery of God. It is profoundly biblical and sacramental and at the same time is deeply respectful of the nature of young children who are able to make their way to God in freedom and joy. Godly Play aims to make religion come alive for children, to assist their spiritual development, to help Christianity become part of daily life and to make the language of religion familiar.
