A quiet service of prayer using liturgy and chants from the Taize Community, France

Taizé is a small village in the Burgundy region of France where an ecumenical community was founded during the Second World War by Brother Roger, to provide sanctuary for those fleeing from persecution. This evening, we gather in the Retrochoir to pray to God using chants which are used at Taizé and in an order of service suggested by the community.

Silence is also a major part of worship at Taizé. As well as some silence between chants we will hold a longer silence during our prayer together.
