At the start of October last year, we hosted a one day Prayer Spaces in Schools Conference in London. We thought that 40 people might come, but nearly 120 of you turned up, and we had an amazing day together. Since then, the number of Prayer Spaces in schools has more than doubled.
This year, we're planning to have at least +three+ amazing Prayer Spaces in Schools Conference days together... and here's the very first details;
+ London, 3rd October
+ Edinburgh, 5th October
+ Leeds, 12th October
(...it's possible that there will be one further location, but we're still working on that)
We'll post more details about the programme, the venues, the themes and workshops, our special guest contributors, and the costs over the next few weeks. We just wanted to give everyone the dates now. Please mark them in your diaries - it will be fantastic to see you!
