Prayer Spaces in Schools is an amazing phenomenon. It has the capacity to engage students in a way that few others mission practices can. A Place for Mission posted about the Prayer Spaces at St John’s Anglican College earlier this year. Next year Phil Togwell from Prayer Spaces in Schools in the UK will be coming to Australia and he will be visiting some capital cities to run day workshops. This will be a fantastic opportunity to hear about the power of Prayer Spaces and learn how they might become a part of your school ministry. We are still looking for a school to host in Sydney so send me an email if you are willing to offer. This tour is being organised by the Anglican Schools Commission in Southern Queensland. The workshops are open to all who work in schools or churches.
