What people say...

“The prayer space has been brilliant for my students. A personal, spiritual and peaceful experience for all groups: I highly recommend it.” 

Head of R.E.

“I’ve never seen prayer displayed or experienced like this before. It’s made me realise how many different ways prayer can be appreciated. It’s opened up religion into my life again. Thank you!”
