“ Prayspace King Edward VI Upper School - day 3 ”

Wednesday, 15th June 2011 - 16:21  |  (0 comments)

Dan Goodwin from Great Barton Free Church came along today. Dan will be joining us as an intern from September – exciting stuff and great to have him involved. We had a quiet morning with no classes coming through, but we roped in some year 9s to help us with some photos for the local paper. Whether we will actually make it in or not remains to be seen (because of the way the space is lit it was a challenge for the photographer to get decent shots!), but it would be really fantastic to think that we will get some coverage for it.

During our full morning of year 9 RE casses, some really lovely kids came through - thoughtfully responding and engaging deeply with the concepts of each of the stations. The most frequent thought for the day seemed to be that the atmosphere of calm and peace allowed them to really focus on what each station was asking of them. Many of them said that having quality time to think was one of the things they really liked about the room. Given that we were forewarned about the potential difficulties with one of the groups this is all the more pleasing!

Following manic but successful set up on Friday, the week began with some frenetic last minute activity to get the room finished before the first group came through at 9.20am.

This morning I had a conversation with someone that I have been chickening out of for a while.

It wasn't to tell them something horrible, it was to ask if they wanted to work with us to run our first prayer space in a school. I was terrified they would be suspicious, not understand what I was talking about, dismiss the idea - say NO!

...was just brilliant!

The rave reviews of all the team did continue to come in to the office - and we're just so grateful for their hard work, and also for the opportunities it now gives us to follow up and build on what happened last week.
