Godly Play Accredited Training, Arbroath (November 2019)
22nd November @ 5:00 pm - 24th November @ 5:00 pm
This Godly Play Storyteller (and Door Person) Accredited Training is designed to give people a better understanding of both the theory and practice of Godly Play.
The course explores each of the main types of story – sacred, parables and liturgy. It concentrates on the core stories that people usually tell at the beginning of their Godly Play journey. Alongside the stories and wondering, are workshops that explore the theology and theory behind Godly Play.
There is a mixture of trainer led and participant storytelling sessions – so you have the opportunity to tell a story as part of the course and see and wonder about 14 other stories.
Godly Play Storyteller and Door Person Accredited training courses are delivered by two (or three) accredited Godly Play trainers. Godly Play Trainers are accredited by the Godly Play Foundation. This, and the course content, meets the guidelines and standards set out by the Godly Play Foundation.
Please be aware that this is compressed, weekend training. The days are long, particularly Saturday.
We start, promptly, at 5pm on Friday and will expect to finish around 10pm. We will include time for dinner.
