Inspire Prayer Spaces

Inspire Prayer Spaces is an initiative that enables Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils to explore values, faith and spirituality from a broadly Christian perspective in a safe, creative and interactive way.

Inspire Prayer Spaces

Inspire Prayer Spaces brings a range of flexible resources and stations to transform a school or church area into a sanctuary of calm. Each station has a theme which encourages pupils to consider their own views, beliefs, emotions and experiences in a safe environment.

Inspire is a flexible resource and brings an experiential dimension to a variety of subject areas and to pastoral aspects of school life.

Inspire works with schools and local churches to put on prayer space day.

Covid-19 update

In the current crisis it is not possible to visit schools so we have produced some resources for use in school or home settings. These can be found on our Resources page.
