Taize worship services offer a quiet and meditative space for thought, prayer or worship. The style is peaceful with prolonged periods of silence, and the message aims to be very inclusive, with a strong devotion to justice and peace. In this way it tries to stay true to the spirit and style of worship begun in the Taize community in France.
Singing of repeated, prayer-chants is characteristic of the worship. Often foreign languages are used (with translations into English in the service sheet) to promote unity amongst all Christian churches and denominations. Music is provided and the congregation are encouraged to participate either by joining in with the music or listening and letting the music flow around or through you.
Services occur several times a year and all people of any faith or none are very welcome to join us.
