Time for Change – Prayer Spaces at Home April 2020

Dear Friends,

Things were a bit different when we last sent one of these newsletters. Schools were still open, and lots of them were hosting prayer spaces. But that’s all changed. And so we are changing too.

With most children and young people at home for the time-being, we decided to try and convert a few of our prayer activities for use at home – after all, not many families have a bubble tube or a gazebo in their living room! … Read more »

There’s been no slowing down though – June has been a busy month! … Read more »

Prayer Spaces in Schools May 2017 Newsletter

Even more Good News… there have already been more than 550 prayer spaces in schools during this academic year! And there were more than 150 prayer spaces in June and July last year, so we’re anticipating a very busy end to the term, supporting, praying for, and connecting with those running prayer spaces all over the world during these next few (hopefully warm) weeks… Read more »
