Year 7 explore hopes, dreams and wishes - 27/03/2018

Year 7 form classes took part in a Prayer Space activity that explored hopes, dreams and wishes. Each individual student was invited to place a post-it note with his or her own individual hope written on it and then there would be an opportunity for prayer and reflection.  Students were encouraged not only to reflect on their own wishes and hopes but to consider others in their thoughts as well. 

This week is part of a rolling programme where Prayer Spaces will be an integral part of the spiritual life of the University Church of England Academy and these will be placed at various points around the school. Students and staff will be encouraged to consider and reflect upon the core values of Believe, Belong, Become and the distinctive Christian atmospheres of Hope, Trust and Peace

Mr Anderson, Chaplain at University Church of England Academy said, “It was an exciting venture to undertake with the Year 7 form groups and it will encourage students to express their hopes and wishes in a prayerful manner.” 

Mary Berry from 7GME said, “It was really good because we were able to use post-it notes for our own wishes. I really enjoyed praying.”
