This article presents an analysis of drawings made by a sample of 135 children aged between 4 and 11 in a Church of England primary school with a view to exploring the relative importance of age and gender in the formation of children's concepts of God. The article concludes that there is evidence that gender, which has been overlooked in previous studies relevant to religious education, ought to be given more priority in future.
