“I got to express my feelings and worries - and I got to pray, which is something I wouldn’t normally do.”
This year we will be celebrating 10 years of Prayer Spaces in Schools at our Day Conferences at the end of September.
Prayer Spaces in Schools wasn’t something that we planned, but something that God made happen.
It began when four people in England who had experienced 24-7 Prayer in their local churches decided to take some of the ideas into school classrooms where students could reflect and pray.
Since then we’ve tracked and supported more than 2,500 prayer spaces in over 30 nations, those are only the ones that we know about.
A prayer space is usually a classroom sized area that has been transformed for a few days or a week with a range of creative activities, that enable children and young people, of all faiths and none, to explore life questions, spirituality and faith in a safe, and interactive way.
“This was one of the most effective sessions I have seen during my career. Too often schools neglect the spiritual needs of students. The prayer space is a unique way of redressing the balance.”
– Head Teacher
To celebrate our 10th anniversary we will be hosting two Day Conferences this September.
· Saturday 23rd September in London
· Saturday 30th September in York.
Our biggest conferences yet will include storytelling, masterclass workshops, opportunities for networking and sharing new resources, and a presentation of the findings from our research project into the impact of prayer spaces in schools.
Prof Julian Stern of York St John University has been researching with hundreds students and staff for the past 8 months and we are looking forward to his keynote presentation.

“I’ve never seen prayer displayed or experienced like this before. It’s opened up religion into my life again, thank you! ”
