Godly Play Film in English

Hi Everyone! We just returned from a relaxing week in Wimberley, TX. Hopefully, I will soon have some pictures for you of our time in the States.

After months of long, hard work, the film by Godly Play Germany is now available in English! I was responsible for the English translation, and received loads of help from Rachel McIntyre, Helen Spencer,  David Pritchard, and Martin Steinhäuser.

Martin premiered the English version at the recent Godly Play North America Conference in Toronto, where it was well-received by the Godly Play community. Please take a look! You may be surprised and inspired at some of the ways we are able to use Godly Play in Germany.


  1. This is brilliant, Sheila.

  2. It was a pleasure for me to help out with the translation. The folk in Toronto were already lining up for copies of the film before the end credits had stopped running! :-)

  3. This is fabulous! I can't wait to share this with parents and teachers here. I love the line at the end - "You just have to pluck up the courage to start doing it!"

    1. Thanks, Jill! I so hope that the film will be a tool to help all of us Godly Players to be able to explain it to others.
