Contemplative Toolkit

The Contemplative Toolkit is one of the many projects and tools supporting our common vision of a more Christ-like Church for the sake of God’s world.

Drawing together wisdom from ancient Christian practices, the resources provide an invaluable way to slow down and reflect in these busy times. Each resource follows a series of key practices. You'll find them at the heart of Come and See each Lent, but the practices can be used at any time of the year.

Space Makers is the version used by schools and churches in the Diocese of Oxford, and a brand new family edition launched in Spring 2023. See more below.

"It's given us time in the day to stop and take time out of our busy lives and think about ourselves in a deeper way."

- Ailsa Toolin, Y6 Teacher at Goring CE Primary School
