Prayer Spaces 2019

June 2019

Pupils from Venerable Bede have been invited once again to take part in a ‘Prayer Spaces’ event.

These events aim to highlight that prayer can take many forms and be practised almost anywhere. One key aim is to help to improve mental health by giving time to reflect on the positives in life.

This year, participants have been encouraged, as part of a team, to develop their own ‘Prayer Space’ activities.

Venerable Bede’s contributions are focused around the phrase “Reservoir of Hope”. 

We wish our Prayer Space Ambassadors the best of luck as they continue to develop their ideas. 

Our event is being hosted in school during the summer term. The aim is to allow pupils to explore life’s questions, in a safe, creative way.

Elijah Dowsett, one of our Religious Education Ambassadors, said:

“We are looking forward to creating our own prayer spaces journey and hoping to help as many people as possible.”

The 2019 initiative was launched earlier this year; images from that event can be seen on the below.
