"It was one of the most effective sessions I have seen during my career. The ethos in the lesson was superb and the gentle interaction between adults and children was heart-warming! Too often schools give into Ofsted pressures and neglect the spiritual needs of their students. The prayer space is a unique way of redressing the balance."Head teacher (Ulveston, Cumbria)

Pray For Schools Fortnight

Prayer Spaces in Schools partner and support the work of Pray For Schools.

There are 30,000 schools in the UK, and Pray for School’s vision is to see every one of them supported by regular Christian prayer. Pray for Schools is not an organisation to ‘join’, but a network that exists simply to encourage prayer for schools in partnership with prayer groups, churches and Christian organisations.

The vision of Pray for Schools fortnight is to bring together people from local churches and others involved in education – parents, students, teachers, governors, staff and volunteers – to pray strategically for schools in their area and those involved in them.

Over the last few years Pray for Schools fortnight has become widely known and an encouraging number of people are continuing to connect and pray. Pray for Schools have produced a Resource Pack to help you find out more: 

This year Pray for School are working with Thy Kingdom Come.

It’s easy to get involved!

Get together a planning group to organise an event. Then please Register your event on the Pray For Schools website.
