“Our church, Telford Elim, have been developing good relationships with the schools in our local area over recent months. After a week of doing assemblies in October 2012, we set up our first Prayer Space in December. Afterwards, the Principal wanted us to continue, so our team have been hosting a Wednesday lunchtime Prayer Space ever since.”

“As we approached our first Prayer Space in our local High School, we did so with anticipation and also fear and trembling. We had been to a training day in Edinburgh where we had heard of how great these events have been in other schools all over the country, but the big question was, would it work for us, or would it be a big flop and nobody would come?”

“Bierton C of E Combined is an average sized primary school which works hard at everything it does. It has a monthly prayer group, a lunchtime Christian club run by an LSA at the school, and some engaging ‘Godly play’ activities. The spiritual scene at the school has been bubbling away. What a perfect time to do a prayer space.” Miriam Jeffries is a teacher at Bierton, and reports on their first-ever prayer space.
