Godly Play Core Training

Manly Uniting Church, West Promenade, Manly, NSW

Upstairs in Godly Play Room – entry via Eustace Street

An intense three-day course, in which participants are immersed in Godly Play practice, learn and tell a story for supportive feedback.

In this time two accredited trainers will work with the group to provide information and experience of the three genres of stories in Godly Play, the role of the storyteller, the role of the doorperson, the Godly Play space, materials, response time, spirituality of the child, forming and maintaining a respectful story circle community, the history and practice of Godly Play and much more.

The core training required to achieve accreditation as a storyteller/doorperson takes three days (a minimum of 21 hours training). All three days and each session must be attended to achieve accreditation.

Suitable for parish workers, teachers, chaplains and clergy, community workers, those employed in hospitals, age care or correctional services; and those hoping to use Godly Play in the life of their family.
