Diddy Disciples celebrates children’s spirituality

Children have an innate sense of God. Let’s try and connect with that spirituality rather than setting out to build something from scratch.

‘Diddy Disciples is an invaluable blend of Sharon Moughtin-Mumby’s reflective practice and contemporary thinking about childhood spirituality. The result is an exceptional and inspiring resource for churches working with the very youngest children. A powerful case for seeing why the very young deserve the very best, and this is a well-tested method for doing that.’

Dr Rebecca Nye,

Godly Play expert and researcher

and consultant in children’s spirituality

Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”’

Matthew 18.3

The Bible talks about God knowing from children inside their mother's womb.

Research suggests that children have a sense of God and spirituality from the youngest age.

Let’s try and make connections with and nurture children’sthat spirituality, rather than trying to build it from scratch.

Imagination is one place where we can witness, share, and nurture children spirituality, so there’s a strong ethos of fostering imagination throughout Diddy Disciples.

Diddy Disciples is strongly influenced by Rebecca Nye’s work on children’s spirituality. If you haven’t read it already, it’s really worth getting hold of a copy!
