Prayer spaces in schools enable children and young people, of all faiths and none, to explore faith, prayer and life's big questions in a safe, creative and interactive way. They enable church and school working together to create a fantastic, experiential opportunity for spiritual development for both primary and secondary school pupils. This training will cover all you need to know to get started in hosting your first prayer space in school; fresh ideas for experienced prayer space practitioners, practical ideas for sourcing materials and gathering a great team; best practice guidelines; theology and values underpinning prayer spaces AND a real-life prayer space for you to see and experience.
We are also offering two twilight sessions after the main training, for church leaders who are interested in how to encourage teams from their own church and then for teachers who are interested to see what Prayers Spaces look like and to talk through the benefits and practicalities of hosting.
