Godly Play

Godly PlayTraining, Networking
and Making it Happen!

Godly Play has been developed over many decades as an imaginative and creative way of helping people of all ages to engage with biblical stories, symbols and rites.

The Diocese of Newcastle is richly resourced in our experienced and nationally-accredited Godly Play trainers, Rachel Bainton and Mary Cooper who facilitate training for schools, volunteer church children’s workers and clergy.

In addition, Helen Robertson convenes a monthly Godly Play Network meeting for practitioners and enquirers of all denominations.
