With a growing interest in Godly Play across the Wellington region and hearing stories of how each of you are using Godly Play in your ministry settings, Lorraine and Debbie are pleased to be able to offer some additional training.
The training will be as a taster for those who were unable to commit to the Core Training in March, AND a refresher for all of us as it will provide the opportunity to continue to practice telling stories and learn more about Godly Play.
In addition, we will allow plenty of time to make materials. You are welcome to attend all three days or for part of the time and to bring anyone from your ministry network who is interested in knowing more about Godly Play.
Please register with Natalie Moreno at the Anglican Centre.
BYO lunch - drink and morning tea provided
$20 per parish - covers all three days.
The cost of materials is additional.

Bishop Justin would like to encourage those with an interest in this important issue to attend this conference. It is easy to think that at our end of the globe we are immune to the effects of human trafficking and labour exploitation but sadly this is not the case and this conference is a welcome opportunity to educate ourselves and hear from subject experts. We are fortunate to welcome as our keynote speaker Andrew Wallis OBE, CEO of the UK organisation Unseen, who work to eradicate modern day slavery and have been catalysts for the UK’s Modern Slavery Act. Thank you to Chris Frazer for her organisation and advocacy work for this conference.
