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 emphasize 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. ALL WELCOME.
Taize services will be held every week on Thursday evenings during Lent (to 11th April).
