I was in London on Tuesday meeting up with Anna Lubelska, Director of Spiritual England. Spiritual England, in partnership with National Children's Bureau, is hosting a conference, "Creating Spiritual Spaces for Children and Young People" in London on Thursday 21st May.
There will be a range of seminars and workshops aimed at chiildren's workers, youth workers and those invoved in primary and secondary education. Nigel Pimlott of Frontier Youth Trust will be speaking about, and running a workshop on, Spirituality and Youth Work. Nigel co-authored Glimpses, the spirituality workbook, for the National Youth Agency.
I will be there with some of the CYO team running Sanctum, our prayer room for schools, during the workshop sessions and over lunch time as an example of what can be done to create a short term spiritual space in secondary schools.
