"Prayer Spaces In Schools enable children and young people to explore faith and spirituality from a broadly Christian perspective in a safe, creative and interactive way. A range of flexible resources can be adapted to work for participants aged 5 to 18 bringing an experiential dimension to a variety of subject areas and to pastoral aspects of school life."
Much of what we do in school is on a horizontal level in terms of human to human but to actually get a chance to stop and think about that vertical relationship, about humans and our relationship with God. It's a privilege really. It's just wonderful to be able to do it for the children.
‘The Prayer Room is a great opportunity for students to have an experience of prayer rather than solely learning about prayer in RE lessons. The Prayer Room facilitates the opportunity for 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 room, enables all young people to have a fresh understanding of what prayer means, rather than seeing it just in a traditionally dry way.’
I’ve been quite surprised at the depth of some of the comments that have been put into the prayer box
