“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)

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 what prayer spaces are and how they work, hear 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, along with training on the practical steps required to set up and run an engaging, safe and appropriate prayer space in a school setting.
