Three Day Accredited Godly Play training course — Wed 26th — Fri 28th April 2017
Lidgett Methodist Church, Wheatlands Grove, York YO26 5NH

This certificated course is being led by accredited members of the College of Trainers of Godly Play UK. Over 3 days (minimum 25 hours training) this training develops your ability to use Godly Play methods and understand its principles. The training follows an action/reflection model of learning — learning through hands-on experience and reflection rather than lectures. There is a mixture of trainer-led sessions, and opportunities for coached participant storytelling presentations. We work in a model Godly Play environment, with the opportunity to use and see a comprehensive set of resources. Each day focuses on different kinds of Godly Play (sacred stories, parables and liturgical action/Church practice) so you will learn how different genres of Christian language can support spiritual exploration. Workshops in the core module also cover: Setting up a Godly Play Environment, the Spirituality of Childhood, your particular concerns and questions.

Godly Play story telling techniques are being used in more and more settings and situations from churches to schools and care homes so the course is open to anyone who wishes to attend.

The cost is £295 per person which includes a detailed training handbook, lunch each day as well as refreshments in coffee/tea breaks.

The course runs from 8.30am each morning and finishes on the first and second day at 6.30pm and the final day at 5.00pm.

Bookings need to made through Godly Play UK and you can find out more and download an application form via their website:
