Sunday School but not as you know it!
Godly Play is a wonderfully engaging way of sharing stories from the Bible in an imaginative way and suits a variety of abilities and attention spans.
What a Godly Play session will look like
Children and parents are welcomed at Clowne church and anyone who comes for the first time can have time to get used to the surroundings.
Children are then welcomed into the Children’s Chapel, ready for the story. There is usually a different story each time, using a beautifully-made sets of materials, which tell a story that is precious to Christians. Children can then wonder about the story and reflect what it means to them.
Children are invited to respond to the story using any of the craft materials available. They don’t have to show or share what they do with anyone else – it’s purely for themselves.
There will be hot drinks for adults in the main body of the church. We will provide some optional quiet activities that you might find useful to help you reflect in a way you are comfortable with.
When they happen
Our next sessions are on Thursday 5th and 12th October at 4pm and last around an hour, children must be accompanied and while the children have their story there are quiet activities for parents and refreshments provided.
