Puppetry in Ministry Workshop

On 31st May 2014, Pupperoos ran a training workshop for Children and Youth Ministry workers called “An Introduction to Puppetry in Ministry”. The workshop was held at Randwick Presbyterian Church and aimed to help participants learn to use puppetry to create engaging talks, skits and dramas to bring the Bible to life for young people and share the message of the Gospel. The 3 hour session included puppet demos, various ‘kids’ talks’ using puppets, principles behind using puppets in ministry, basic training on operating lip sync (moving mouth) puppets and ‘Puppet Playtime’ where participants had a go at coming up with simple drama scenarios with their puppets.
