Prayer space activities

Here are a selection of activity ideas for your prayer and reflection space based around different themes. You could adapt these activities for use in prayer and reflection spaces in other contexts than schools. Each theme has a lesson plan, activity outline sheet to help you choose your activities and instruction cards that can be downloaded and laminated for use in your prayer space. You may need to alter the wording of the instruction cards to best fit the context you are working in.

We are grateful to Prayer Spaces in Schools, the teams that they work with, and other teams around the county who have developed many of these resources for us to be able to host on our website for others to enjoy and use. We are part of the Prayer Spaces in Schools network and will also share activities with them. You may also find additional ideas for your prayer and reflection space on their website too.

Please note that we do not stock all the resources for all of these activities so please check with us which items you may need to supply yourself for your prayer and reflection space. Please email us at:

If you have developed any other themes that have worked well and would like to share them with others please send us details so we can add them to this page.
