All Things Considered

BBC

Godly Play is a a global movement for faith education for children and adults; taught in over sixty-six countries across the globe and used by all the major Christian denominations. It's rooted in the philosophy of Maria Montessori, and is based on a trust in children’s innate spirituality. Through stories and play, children are encouraged to develop an understanding of God through wonder, rather than instruction. This autumn the first Godly Play stories will be published in Welsh, and we begin with the translator Cass Meurig, at Christ Church, Bala with her regular Godly Play group. Peter Privett is the lead trainer for Godly Play in the UK and has been closely involved with the movement since its outset. He discusses the philosophy and rationale underpinning the movement. In Lancashire an enterprising church community have developed a mobile Godly Play bus, and practitioner Ellen Monk Winstanley takes us on a tour. Hannah Rowan leads Godly Play sessions in churches and chaplaincies across Wales and explains why she believes the movement has just as much relevance for adults as for children. The Welsh translations of Godly Play will be launched in Bangor Cathedral at 6pm on 26th October.
