"Even the lives of our young people get pressured and squeezed. Soul Space does something remarkable: it claims that space and offers a place to breathe some healthy spiritual air. The responses from young people demonstrate what can happen when we allow a little bit of God space into crowded lives. It's a precious gift!"Revd. Simon Ward (Chaplain to the Lord Bishop of Norwich)

Our Conference is going online!

Social distancing. Year group bubbles. Enhanced risk assessments. “Robust hand and respiratory hygiene” guidance. Visitor restrictions. School is going to look very different in the next academic year, because of the ongoing global impact of the Covid-19 virus. And this means the way that churches and Christian organisations offer support to schools will need to change too.

And of course, there are big questions about the impact that these last few months have had on children and young people. For some, it’s been a safe and enjoyable time, while for others, it’s been acutely challenging and traumatic.

As these children and young people return to schools in the coming months, the need for pastoral, safeguarding and wellbeing services is likely to be high.

We want to explore how to navigate these challenges with new hope. On Monday 21 September the Prayer Spaces in Schools team are hosting our first online Conference, in partnership with our amazing friends at Youthscape.

This free Conference will include keynote presentations, live webinars, breakout discussions and Q&A with a wide range of schools-work practitioners and experts.

“I have plans for you,” says the Lord to Jeremiah, “plans to give you hope and a future.”

So we’d love you to join us, wherever you’re based, as we explore the future together at our first ever online schools-work conference.
