 Every Friday 7pm @ Hemel Hempstead SDA Church


Godly Play invites children into stories and encourages them to connect the stories with personal experience.  It is a non-coercive way to encourage children to move into larger dimensions of belief and faith, through wondering questions and open-ended response time.  It is a way of preparing children to join in the worship and life of their congregations as they develop a deeper understanding of stories, symbols and rites.


Although it was originally developed as a resource for children, Godly Play is now being used with a wide range of age groups in a diversity of settings.  It is one of several variations of the Montessori tradition of religious education and has been developed in the United States by Dr Jerome Berryman.
