"Visiting Parc Eglos school was a privilege in itself so it was a very pleasant surprise to observe a group of pupils actively engaged in learning about prayer and faith. Schools are busy places and do not always lend themselves to times of quiet. The Prayer Space is clearly a place where children can take time to learn about themselves, each other and the role faith plays in modern life."Derek Thomas, MP for St Ives (Cornwall)

Bristol: Getting Started with Prayer Spaces in Schools

Tue, 28 Jan 2020 19:30 - Tue, 28 Jan 2020 21:30

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

Since 2007 over 4000 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.

This session will be free, practical and interactive. Do come along if you’re interested in finding out what’s involved in hosting a prayer space – there will be a prayer space for you to try out.
