What is Godly Play?
… is a creative and imaginative approach to faith formation and spiritual development

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