The best way to learn about Godly Play is “from the inside out,” by attending a workshop or training led by an accredited Trainer.

There are several learning options:

Taster or Demonstration – Usually a two- to four-hour session with stories and an introduction to the underlying principles and basics to get started.

Introductory – A daylong event (sometimes including the evening before) with a story from each Godly Play genre (Sacred, Parable, Liturgical), underlying principles, basics to get started, and a hands-on opportunity to work with the materials and learn a story.

Core Training – An intense three-day course in which participants learn and tell a story for supportive feedback and evaluation. Core Training includes three plenary sessions: The Environment, The Spirituality of the Child, and The Community of Children.

Make and Play Days – Usually a daylong event that involves creating materials for a story and practicing storytelling.

Going Further – Two-day sessions for experienced Godly Play leaders who want to deepen their skills and understanding or experience stories from the Enrichment Volumes.
