"The Prayer Space enables students to learn from RE, rather than just to learn about RE. The different ways for students to engage with prayer, whilst in the Prayer Space, enables all young people to have a fresh understanding of what prayer means, rather than seeing it just in a traditionally dry way."Mr Perry (Head teacher, Romford)

We’ve all got rubbish in our lives.
Farmers sometimes use wheelbarrows to move rubbish from one place to another. This activity uses a wheelbarrow as a strong visual metaphor for ‘getting rid of the rubbish’.
Students are invited to think about the rubbish in their lives, the rubbish on the ‘inside’. Not just ‘outside’ rubbish like broken objects and worn out clothes, but ‘inside’ rubbish too.

(This prayer activity was created by Michael Scharf who works for the Diocese of Vienna, Austria.)
