Taizé Service

Taizé

Our Taizé-style worship service, held on the second Friday of each month at 7:30pm is a quiet and relaxed service based on the Taizé tradition including candlelight, bible readings, prayer, times of silence, musical meditation, and spiritual songs.

The service offers time out from the busyness of life, a time to participate or simply listen, and to hear the good news of Jesus in different way.

What is Taizé?

Taizé is a village in eastern France.  Since 1940 it has been the home of an ecumenical community of brothers committed to prayer and worship.  Thousands of pilgrims of all ages visit Taizé, now known as a place of international meetings of prayer and reflection.  Brother Roger first came to the village of Taizé in 1940.  He dreamt of starting a community "on account of Christ and. the Gospel".  From its beginnings the community has worked for reconciliation among Christians split apart into different denominations.  But the brothers do not view reconciliation among Christians as the end in itself: it concerns all of humanity, since it makes the Church a place of communion for all.
