      Title: How does imagination open up (or close down!) the Bible?
      For anyone who wishes to facilitate the exploration of biblical texts with small groups from around age 10 and up.
      This experiential workshop will explore the RRC’s new Read and Respond resource. Inspired by Godly Play and Deep Talk, this approach may be adapted to explore any Biblical narrative. No previous experience of Godly Play is required, just the willingness to come along and take part!
      Participants will experience three biblical texts, reflect upon their own learning responses, explore their skills as facilitators and share how the resource might be used in their own contexts.
      All are welcome! Places are limited so we recommend early booking to avoid disappointment.
