Godly Play. For older children (5-10 year olds), we use Godly Play, an activity which focuses on a different Bible story each week. It encourages the children to interact with the story and relate it to their own experience.
There is then a time of prayer followed by ‘the Feast’ – biscuits, a drink and a chat. The session ends with a creative slot in which the children use a variety of materials to express what they have learnt from the session.
The children return to the main church in time to receive Holy Communion or a blessing.
I enjoy Godly Play because we have a different Bible story each week and it helps me to feel closer to God (Sophie aged 8)
