Godly Play Scotland is hosting its third – postponed from 2020 – conference from 19-20 November at Portobello and Joppa Parish Church in Edinburgh with guest speaker, Dr Rebecca Nye.

Portobello is known as ‘Edinburgh’s Seaside’ and our guest speaker spent her early childhood years looking out on this very beach.

Rebecca will share a bit about her own experience of childhood spirituality in those early years as she explores with us the importance of an adult culture that believes in childhood spirituality.

The conference begins with this opening talk at 7pm on Friday night. On Saturday we will continue from 10am with a Godly Play story, a plenary session with Rebecca, lunch, two workshop sessions, and worship time which will finish by 4pm.

Throughout the conference there will be market stalls, tea and coffee and time to chat with fellow Godly Players. Workshops will include topics like: Wondering, Godly Play with Makaton Signing, Stories of God at Home, Godly Play Large, Outdoor Godly Play and more. Plans are also in the works to include an enrichment day option for Friday during the day before the opening talk.

The full conference costs £50 with an option of just the Saturday for £40 or just the Friday evening for £20.

Booking will open again in Spring 2020
