What is Godly Play?

… is a creative and imaginative approach to faith formation and spiritual development
… uses symbols, objects, silence, and words to explore biblical stories and Christian practices
… encourages people to make meaning for themselves
… values process, openness, and discovery
… is based on long-established, tried and tested approaches
… invites participants into stories and encourages them to connect the stories with personal experience

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.
