Pop Up Prayer Spaces

A pop up prayer space has a specific focus linked to an event in the church or school year, a tragedy or celebration, and can run for just a day or for a few days. This kind of prayer space is usually in a foyer, atrium, hall or other publicly accessible space within the school so that pupils and staff can access the prayer activity at free times through the school day. Examples include Remembrance, Holocaust Memorial, wellbeing enrichment days, beginnings and ends of term, hopes and dreams for a new year or any number of other significant moments in school life.

A pop up space creates an opportunity for a burst of spiritual life for the whole school community, gathering the individual responses of each person into a shared expression of faith, hope and care.
