The Scenes

In the beginning

The story of Creation and Fall was explained so that the children were introduced to the idea of how God and man could be reconciled. They were asked to wonder why and how this could be done.

We chose to use a 'Godly play' approach (follow the Barnabas website link below for more details). We used visuals and sound to create atmosphere as the children entered the Hall.
