Kingdom Kids is our group for nursery aged children, 3-5 years of age.
We use the Godly Play approach which was developed by Jerome Berryman. Godly Play values process, openness and discovery.
It invites listeners into stories and encourages them to connect the stories with personal experience.
Godly Play is a non-coercive way of encouraging children to move into larger dimensions of belief and faith, through wondering questions and open-ended response time.
We gather in a circle and share a bible story together, using materials specifically designed to help tell the story. Then there is time to ‘wonder’ about the story and the children are given a choice of activities, using materials from the bible stories to explore and play. Art and building activities are also available.
Every third week we have a feast day where the leaders and children share a snack together, a great chance to talk and get to know each other better.
There are five leaders for Kingdom Kids: Emily, Dot, Iwona, Ros and Dorcas.
