Our schools team have set up over 50 Prayer Spaces, but last week was the first time they set one up for school staff rather than students!

The Schools Team were invited to be part of Worthing Deanery’s Inset Day by providing two Prayer Spaces for staff to experience.

With prayer activities largely similar to those we’d use for students we were unsure how staff would respond. However, many connected with the creative activities and enjoyed the time and space given to them to think, reflect and pray. Some took away ideas of activities they could use in the classroom too.

One member of staff commented: “Thanks for the excellent staff experience, I think it really opened up some hearts and minds.”

Another said: “I much appreciated your input last Friday, I thought it was a very spirit filled day.”

One highlight for our team was meeting the Bishop and seeing him enjoying the Prayer Space too!
