Sunday , 6:00 Brother Merric talk, 6:30 service followed by meal at Eltham Hotel.
Taizé is the creation of a monastic community in Taizé, France, founded in the 1940s by a Swiss man known as Brother Roger. The brothers there are celibates who emphasise service and ecumenicalism, particularly reconciliation between divided peoples and divided Christians.
Light, prayer, and music in a beautiful setting are woven together in contemplative prayer at a Taize service. We sing simple harmonized tunes, often in various languages, interspersed with readings, prayers, and periods of silence.
