Netherton Methodist Church, 63 Netherton Road
Wishaw, ML2 0DD United Kingdom

£15

Some of the Godly Play materials you have to buy, others you can borrow and the rest you can make.

Materials Days are all about making your own materials.

We'll supply quality, basic, raw materials (mdf and plywood tiles, foamcore, images) and the tools (glue, sandpaper, craft knives) you need to use to allow you to make your own Godly Play storytelling objects. There will be experienced crafters and makers available to advise and help you with your endeavours.

Making Materials days are pretty busy, with people making different things, and there is usually lots of Godly Play chat and networking and not nearly enough coffee drinking.
