"A prayer space gives students time for reflection in our busy curriculum. Allowing students to interact with the prayer space fills a genuine need for students to reflect on some of the big issues affecting their lives as well as considering their spiritual views on Christianity. This was a very valuable experience for the school for both staff and students."Pauline Walker (Head teacher)

York; Getting Started With Prayer Spaces in Schools

Wed, 20 Mar 2019 19:00 - Wed, 20 Mar 2019 21:00

Interested in getting started with your first Prayer Space? This is for you!

Since 2007 over 3000 prayer spaces have been run in primary schools, secondary schools and colleges around the country. This training is for anyone interested in running a prayer space in either primary or secondary schools.

You'll learn about what prayer spaces are and how they work, with stories and examples from people and parishes who have already run prayer spaces. There will be time to explore a range of prayer space activities suitable for schools with training on the practical steps required to set up and run an engaging safe and appropriate prayer space in a school setting.

Led by Olivia Seymour, Education Adviser for the York Diocese and regional networker for Prayer Spaces in Schools.
