Prayer Spaces in Schools

What are Prayer Spaces in Schools?

Prayer Spaces in Schools enable children and young people, of all faiths and none, to explore life’s questions, spirituality and faith in a safe, creative and interactive way.

Prayer spaces give children and young people an opportunity to develop skills of personal reflection and to explore prayer in an open, inclusive and safe environment. The approach purposely allows pupils to make their own meaning and to draw their own conclusions.

‘It was a calm experience and it was a way of speaking to God in peace and being able to pray about other people’
