Prayer Space

Each term children from different year groups attend Prayer Spaces at Hartwell Church. Here the Archway Trust enable children, of all faiths and none, to explore life questions, spirituality and faith in a safe, creative and interactive way. The Prayer Space days give children and staff the opportunity to be still and reflect on many blessings and consider issues affecting ourselves, and others both locally and across the world.

Prayer Space during Summer Term 2023 focused on transition and the children and staff were amazed to be met by a giant whale in the church. The children listened to the story of Jonah and the whale whilst sitting in the belly of the beast which even had the pungent smell of rotting fish in it!
