“We are very pleased with the prayer space in our school. It worked out real depth, and shows who we are as a school. We’re always looking for opportunities to help the students to think about the meaning of life and the prayer space helps to form their identity. It’s an important consideration that I make everyday as manager: What suits this school at this time? The prayer space fits well within the task we have in the areas of socialization, personal development and civic education of our students. The prayer space was way more than just a quiet room. Often you see that those spaces are empty and not in use. But this time it was really alive."Bas Bastiaanse, School Director (Netherlands)

Prayer Spaces in Schools Regional Network

The Prayer Spaces in Schools Network are trusted friends and prayer space practitioners who can also offer support, encouragement and local training workshops to those who want to get started with prayer spaces.

You might want to exchange some emails or chat with someone on the phone, or maybe meet for a coffee to get some advice and ideas. You might want to visit a prayer space in your area. You might want to organise a training workshop, or attend one nearby. Hopefully, our regional Networkers will be able to help you.

The Network, these regional friends, also help us, the national teams. Together, we serve and steward and represent Prayer Spaces in Schools. We are committed to the values and to the overall vision, which is to equip local Christians to serve the spiritual life of their local school community by hosting great prayer spaces. (And yes, the word ‘local’ appears twice - we're trying to make a point.)
