#heartwarmed — Grand Opening of Spiritual Sanctuary
Richmond Methodist Primary School, North Yorkshire

A Spiritual Sanctuary has been built at a school for children to use as a space for calmness, prayer and reflection during their play times.

The whole school gathered on the school field in the sunshine to enjoy a very thoughtful act of collective worship, looking at different aspects and traditions of prayer and reflection.

Volunteers from the North Yorkshire Dales Methodist Circuit and beyond shared prayers and took part in reflection activities.

Children were invited to walk a prayer labyrinth, to think about how they had changed with thank-you butterflies, to pray for others by making pipe-cleaner people, and to reflect on calmness with glitter jars and on forgiveness by wiping out impressions in a sand tray.

Children and teachers enjoyed all the activities and sent a big "thank you" to all the wonderful Church members who made Reflection Week such a special time.

Schools and Families Worker Rachel Pinkney said: "The Spiritual Sanctuary is providing all children with a permanent space to be still, to think, pray and take time out from the rush and business of the school day. It is an oasis of calm in the playground."
