Prayer Spaces in Schools are holding two national conferences in 2017. Incredibly, it’s almost ten years since the first prayer space, and they reckon that at least a million children and young people have participated in one in their local school already. At the Day Conferences in September, they’ll be marking this tenth anniversary with some inspiring stories (possibly some cake too), and looking ahead at what we hope is still to come.
Professor Julian Stern from York St John University will be with us to present the findings of his research into the impact of prayer spaces in schools (a published format will be available), and then there will be a variety of practitioners leading 10-12 workshops and hosting conversations with those who are just getting started with their first prayer spaces, and with those who have hosted loads of them and who are now wrestling with questions around better practice or theology or safe-guarding or working alongside those of other faiths, etc. Finally they” be the launch some new resources, and reporting on the spread of prayer spaces in schools into other nations too.
Anyway, the main details are as follows;
LONDON, St Mark’s Battersea Rise, Saturday 23rd September, 10.30am – 5pm
There us also a second conference
YORK, St John’s University, Saturday 30th September, 10.30am – 5pm
