All Saints hosts Godly Play training

All Saints hosts Godly Play training

All Saints’ Episcopal Church, Fort Worth, has rescheduled its Core Godly Play Training course for June 9-11.

Anyone interested in learning this Montessori-based method of facilitating children’s learning is invited to register. A Godly Play Foundation participation certificate will be awarded upon completion of Core training.


The Godly Play Foundation’s website describes the method of teaching in this way:

Children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. Based on Montessori principles and developed using a spiral curriculum, the Godly Play method serves children through early, middle and late childhood and beyond.


Thursday, June 9th 3:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Friday, June 10th 8:30am – 6:00pm
Saturday, June 11th 8:30am – 3:00pm

To support each member of the circle, participants are required to be present the entire training. Participants are expected to read Teaching Godly Play: How to Mentor the Spiritual Development of Children by Jerome W. Berryman before attending training; the Kindle edition is now available.

Cynthia Hill and Chaplain Ryan Campbell, Godly Play Foundation Trainers, will
lead the course.
