Godly Play - St Andrew's Episcopal Church of York, PA

Nov 27, 2017

Welcome to the Godly Play program at St Andrew's Episcopal Church of York, PA. Join us and discover the transformative power of faith through interactive storytelling and creative expression.

What is Godly Play?

Godly Play is a unique approach to religious education that emphasizes the importance of story and play in the spiritual development of children and adults alike. Developed by educator and theologian, Dr. Jerome Berryman, it nurtures curiosity, imagination, and wonder.

Why Choose Godly Play at St Andrew's Episcopal Church?

At St Andrew's Episcopal Church, we are dedicated to creating a warm and welcoming environment for children, where they can explore their faith in a meaningful and engaging way. Our Godly Play program offers:

  • Interactive Storytelling: Through the power of storytelling, children are invited to enter into the stories of the Bible and encounter the mystery of God in a personal and relatable way. Our experienced storytellers guide children in reflecting on the stories and encourage them to share their own interpretations.
  • Creative Expression: Godly Play encourages children to express their spiritual insights through art, crafts, and other creative activities. This allows them to engage with the stories on a deeper level and develop their own unique understanding of faith.
  • Inclusive Community: We believe that every child is a valued member of our community. In our Godly Play sessions, children learn to appreciate and respect one another's perspectives, fostering an environment of inclusivity, love, and support.
  • Faith Formation: The Godly Play program helps children build a solid foundation of faith by exploring key stories from the Bible, engaging in theological reflection, and participating in communal worship. Through this process, they develop a genuine and personal relationship with God.
