"It is as if the space has tapped into a vein of spirituality in our pupils that none of us, themselves included, knew they had. Even pupils who exhibit challenging behaviour in some lessons have been calm as soon as they walk into the space. Pupils who were already Christian seem relieved that their classmates now understand how faith helps them through their daily lives."Head of RE, Pakefield High School (Suffolk)

Whitby: Getting Started with Prayer Spaces in Schools

Tue, 21 May 2019 19:00 - Tue, 21 May 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.
