coming up this term...

The spring term is always busy in schoolswork - the school has settled into it's rhythm after the disruption of new September and Christmas, and there aren't too many exams to get in the way of other stuff.

This year, the Religious Education Council of England and Wales have designated March as Celebrating RE Month and are encouraging schools to put on special events to show off the best of RE and remind us of its importance.

So what are Orison and breathe doing to celebrate RE this month? (Well, this term actually - a month is never enough!)

Breathe offered free bookings during Celebrating RE Month, so over the next few weeks we're going to be in Northampton, Milton Keynes, Enfield, Plymouth, Central London, Gillingham, Nottingham, Manchester, Sutton, Leeds, Crawley and Egham. If you're interested in resources for spiritual development for 16-19 year olds and would like to see breathe in action, drop me a line and we'll make some arrangements.

March is Orison's busiest month yet, with 4 consecutive weeks of Orison taking place in Littlehampton, Leeds, Worcester and Manchester. 2 of these are secondary and 2 are primary so we'll see the full range - that's over 2000 children and young people experiencing a prayer space in their school in the space of 4 weeks! If you want to visit a school prayer space, again, get in touch and we'll see what we can do. Or see some of Orison in action at the Children & Families Ministry Conference in Eastbourne in February.

Orison is part of the Prayer Spaces In Schools Network. We're aware of prayer spaces happening in UK schools in Leeds, Colchester, Oxford, Romford and Wakefield during March, and there's probably loads more that we haven't heard about yet too. Check out some of the stories from recent prayer spaces in schools on the website.

A busy month, but exciting stuff. Watch this space...
