As part of our chaplaincy initiative in the St Benet's Multi Academy Trust we had the privilege of running an Easter Prayer Space in Archbishop Sancroft High School, Harleston, from 28th March – 1st April. We set up 5 different zones, separated by gazebos, rails and fabric with different stations in each. Based around Easter we had Garden, Hope, Image, World and Forgiveness zones, an area to provide reflection on the Last Supper, a ‘Be still’ area and an empty chair to encourage time to think about people we have lost.
If you've ever been to Integrate camp, this is for you. Doors open at 6.30 for games and a tuck shop, at 7pm we'll play loads of games, have some music and general craziness and then chat about some issues that may be facing you. It's a chance to meet other groups from around the area, mingle and be part of something bigger!
Next date: Saturday, 19th March, 6:30pm, Diss Methodist Church

"The talk (about worry) was really good for me to hear as I worry too much."
"A great evening! Well done everyone."
"I love the visiting speaker."
"The egg splatting game was great fun!"
"The best things about Youth Cafes are games and activities where you solve things with friends."
We run More2Life lunch time clubs in schools where we work with young people to provide a safe haven and somewhere to discuss issues from a Christian perspective.
We currently work in four high schools - Diss High School, Archbishop Sancroft High School, Long Stratton High School and Old Buckenham High School.
Lunchtime clubs provide an opportunity to spend more focused time with some of the young people we meet in our more informal youth cafes, whilst still including lots of games, quizzes and fun!
