‘Godly Play’ Introduced to Children’s Work in Cork, Cloyne and Ross

The Children’s Ministry Group in Cork, Cloyne and Ross organised a very enjoyable Workshop on ‘Godly Play’ on Saturday, 14th April.  It was led by the excellent Cora O’Sullivan.  Cora O’Farrell  is a Godly Play trainer with Godly Play Ireland. She uses Godly Play in her work with student teachers at the Institute of Education, Dublin City University.

Cora O’Sullivan tells a well known Bible story using the Godly Play approach

 Over 30 attendees were spellbound by the Cora’s demonstration of the Godly Play approach which can help children to explore their faith through story. Godly Play technique, based on Montessori teaching principles,  gently teaches religious language while enhancing the children’s spiritual experience though wonder and play.
