For 3 year olds plus, FishPlay is our name for the renowned Bible-story program Godly Play. Six adults who have been trained in the art of storytelling and creative response, meet with the children for one hour on Sunday morning in the FishPlay room on the 2nd floor of the parish house brings.  Together the children experience the richness of the Bible and wonderment of God.  FishPlay begins from the assumption that all children are spiritual and our role is to nurture that spiritual core.
