In most religious education children are told what God did. At St Nicholas, we encourage children to discover who God is.
Godly Play is a Montessori method of telling Bible stories, developed by Jerome Berryman, using parables, sacred stories and liturgical lessons about religious traditions using simple materials. Over the past four years we have invested in developing a well resourced Godly Play room and equipping several qualified Godly Play teachers. However we are unable to sustain this ministry at present due to teachers moving on and increasingly complex statutory requirements. Our solution to this is an initiative being facilitated by our families with primary school age children. We are calling this Families4Families and along with the shared activity resources social opportunities such as shared picnics are happening.
Families4Families. Resources are made available for families and you can opt in to use these during the time the adult teaching is given. However it's important to know that parents remain responsible for their children with the activity.
